Understanding Prompts


Concept


Steps:

  1. In this example page, the different types of prompts that appear frequently in PeopleSoft applications are displayed.

    Step 1
  2. The Prompt Table Edit restricts selection to only data that is in the prompt table.

     

    A look up button (magnifying glass) indicates a prompt table runtime prompt. You click this button, search, and then select a value from the prompt table.

    Step 2
  3. The Translate Table Edit restricts selection to only data that is in the Translate table (PSXLATITEM).

     

    The Translate table is a PeopleTools table with predefined values that are associated with a particular field.

     

    A drop-down list indicates a Translate Table runtime prompt. You click the drop-down list and then select a value from the list. You cannot search a Translate Table prompt.

    Step 3
  4. The Yes/No Table Edit restricts you to selecting only yes (Y) or no (N) values.

     

    A check box indicates a Yes/No Table runtime prompt.

    Step 4
  5. Some fields are unrestricted and have no edits. A likely field that uses no table edit is a date field.

     

    A text box also indicates that there is no table edit.

    Step 5
