    PSPROJECTITEM Explained - Part 1

    The definition table for PeopleSoft Project is PSPROJECTDEFN. PSPROJECTITEM table holds all the objects included in a PeopleSoft object.
    1. PSPROJECTDEFN - Project Definition Table
    2. PSPROJECTITEM - Project Item table with PSPROJECTDEFN as Parent record.
    In order to analyze a project from backend during upgrades, applying patches or during major application releases it would be much easier if we could analyze from the project details from the database directly. Sometimes, we may have to even insert multiple definitions into a project and doing that manually would be painsome. Understanding both PSPROJECTDEFN and PSPROJECTITEM tables will help us to play around.

    PeopleSoft project creation in Application Designer is a simple activity which inserts corresponding project row in PSPROJECTDEFN. So I would prefer creating a PeopleSoft project in Application Designer rather than through database using SQL queries.

    But doing something with PSPROJECTITEM, understanding the data stored in PSPROJECTITEM looks rather difficult until you do it atleast once. Since the fields in PSPROJECTITEM does not have translate values we need to know the description of values stored in the fields - OBJECTTYPE, SOURCESTATUS, TARGETSTATUS, UPGRADEACTION, TAKEACTION and COPYDONE.

    Below is the PSPROJECTITEM table and the various field values it can hold along with the descriptions. Once we understand this table, then we can play around and accomplish a lot of activities related to PS projects.

    There are several sources through which we can get these values in a search engine however one would like to know where we can find these values rather than relying on a web source.

    Where to find values and description of OBJECTTYPE in PSPROJECTITEM Record?
    1. From PeopleTools 8.50, the values of OBJECTTYPE field can be retrieved from the table - PS_WHEREOBJUSEDTBL(not sure if available in People Tools 8.49).
    2. UPG.SQC has the values for all these fields - OBJECTTYPE, SOURCESTATUS, TARGETSTATUS, UPGRADEACTION, TAKEACTION and COPYDONE.
