The Data Conversion Analyzer

What is the EOUFANALYSIS program? What does it do?

In application Upgrades, the EOUFANALYSIS Application Engine program is


run to perform a detailed analysis of the data conversion code within the
MAIN data conversion group, for the specific upgrade path. It will determine
the Source and Target Tables used in each Application Engine step.
The data generated by this process is used later in the upgrade to calculate
the table dependencies between the data conversion sections that are
executed at runtime.
This does not run in PeopleTools Only Upgrades.
Renamed to PTIAANALYSIS in 9.2 upgrades.

Data Conversion in Application Upgrades

Each of the upgrade data conversion sections contains comments

that describe the processing performed by


the section. Oracle delivered an SQR to list all of these comments
by the group and sequence numbers that
determine how they run. The name of this report is UDATACNV.
To run UDATACNV:

Using SQRW, run SQR UDATACNV on your Copy of Production


database.
When prompted for upgrade path, enter: F890
When prompted for group number, enter the two-digit group number
to report on, or enter 0 to see the comments for all groups.
This report is now PTIA0010 in 9.2 upgrades.
