PeopleSoft Tips from the Tipster
By Tim Dexter on Jan 15, 2008
I've mentioned numerous times on this blog that I'm no PeopleSoft expert, hence that part of our community suffers. Im not one for writing about a subject that I dont know enough about - well thats what I would have you believe. Its getting tougher, there are some very knowledgeable folks out on the forums these days that know things better than I do.
To fill the PeopleSoft void in my brain that I really must try and fill. We have the 'PeopleSoft Tipster' aka Duncan Davies from the UK - Im guessing Duncan has a 'mixed' heritage and I mean that in the nicest way, a Scottish first name and a Welsh last name. We have done this to one of our sons too - Douglas Lewellyn Dexter - his great grandfather has roots in Wales and his grandfather is from Scotland - not sure where 'Dexter' originates thou - other than cows and an association with particularly dexterous people.
Back to Duncan - lots of PeopleSoft tips but of particular interest to folks here will be his posts relating to XMLP as it sits in the PS Tools stack. Rather than list the current posts here which will not be useful over time Im just going to hook into Duncan's XMLP category.
The latest post is a cool workaround for the limitations of PSQuery and its XML datasets.
