The ASOFDATE on the PS_PERSONNEL View

(Doc ID 2002161.1)

Last updated on MARCH 17, 2017

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM Human Resources - Version 8.9 to 9.2 [Release 8.9 to 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Customers have been using the Personnel view for queries but found that it doesn't always return the correct results because the asofdate from the psasofdate table does not get updated consistently.  Some Customers write a script to update the asofdate every night, while others don't use the Personnel view for queries because it is unreliable.

What is Oracle's recommendation for the use of this view? Also, is there a list available that explains which views should and should not be used for queries.
