Have you ever wondered what is going on with a customization that doesn't work properly? Do you want to understand why your Oracle Support engineer is asking you to provide them with a trace? Do you want to learn more about what such a trace reveals about how your application works? When something goes wrong in an application, you have an option of guessing at what is happening underneath the hood, or you can use utilities to gather evidence that clearly explains what the code is doing and why it is doing it. There are several video series available on My Oracle Support that help you to understand what a cobol compile error list is telling you, what a PeopleCode SQL Trace is showing or how to interpret a Cobol SQL trace. If you are new to PeopleSoft and need to learn how to troubleshoot your applications, or if you just want to improve your own skills, please consider any of these multimedia articles to learn how to use these utilities.
