PeopeTools Tables

Which Version Number Corresponds Which PeopleTools Object?

Recently somebody asked me "Our “CRM” values in PSLOCK and PSVERSION are growing tremendously and we don’t know why. We will be opening a case with Oracle but … do you know what that “CRM” value is related to? We are not using the CRM product in our PeopleSoft installation."
There is some documentation on the Oracle Support website, but it is not exhaustive and may not be completely up to date.

Announcing the Co-Operative PeopleTools Table Reference

I have created a reference to the PeopleTools tables and views on my website. 

In the course of my work on PeopleSoft, I spend a lot of time looking at the PeopleTools tables. They contain meta-data about the PeopleSoft application. Much of the application is stored in various tables that are maintained by Application Designer. Some tables provide information about the Data Model. Others contain configuration data that is maintained via PeopleTools components in the PIA.

Many of my utility scripts query information from PeopleTools tables, and some also update them. Of course, that is strictly not supported, but if you understand how the tables fit together it can be done relatively safely.  So, it is very helpful to be able to understand what is in these tables.
