E-AE/PC: Variations of SQL Resolution of the %TruncateTable Meta-SQL: "TRUNCATE TABLE" vs "DELETE FROM"

(Doc ID 1560226.1)

Last updated on JUNE 25, 2013

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.40 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On PeopleTools 8.4x / 8.5x and using Oracle Database platform, the %TruncateTable({table}) Meta-SQL may resolve in SQL to "TRUNCATE TABLE {table}", but sometimes it resolves to "DELETE FROM {table}", even in different sections of the same Application Engine program, what controls this behavior, why does it vary?
