An issue that seems to come up regularly is that the Salesrep name is elusive! This problem is most often reported in the context of custom reports that use JTF_RS_SALESREPS table to retrieve the salesrep name.
In fact JTF_RS_SALESREPS.NAME is obsolete as from 11i onwards and is retained for backward compatibility only. This field should not be used to retrieve the name of a salesperson. All salesreps are resources, so the resource name should be used instead of salesrep name.
For example SQL to retrieve the resource name see: Why is the NAME field in the table JTF_RS_SALESREPS sometimes null? (Doc ID 550284.1) .
