Symptoms


GB_RATES_HISTORY function is fetching 3 times annual salary using PQP_RATES_HISTORY_CALC package

A fast formula is used to calculate amount for an element. Also  using seeded function GB_RATES_HISTORY and this function is using seeded package PQP_RATES_HISTORY_CALC.RATES_HISTORY.
This function is returning 3 times the annual salary value.

In package PQP_RATES_HISTORY_CALC.RATES_HISTORY, inside the function GB_RATES_HISTORY  there is one cursor  named  l_csr_element_set and it giving 3  rows for a single element ‘Annual Salary’ and due to this there is a loop which  is running  3 times hence generating 3 times result.The reason for the misbehave of the cursor is there is new  incorporation of one more table named  pay_element_types_f_tl   within the cursor which is not present in the old version of the package function pqp_rates_history_calc.RATES_HISTORY (version 9).

The table pay_element_types_f_tl  is fetching 3 rows of single element due to there are no check on language. There are 3 rows in table pay_element_types_f_tl due to languages (D, FRC and US).
