|Purpose||To inform all query users of the freeze on OSC's converting queries.|

delete any queries that were duplicates or were unnecessary.
Agencies were also notified to rename queries to comply with the PeopleSoft 8.3 query naming standards. Currently there are over 200 queries that begin with UG but do not comply with the PeopleSoft 8.3 naming standards. These queries will not be converted unless agency action makes them compliant (refer to Payroll Bulletin 328).
Agencies have been informed that queries that do not run in the current version will be renamed beginning with Z_. Agencies are to correct and rename the query to the PeopleSoft 8.3 query naming standards and OSC will retest (refer to Bulletin 363).

Any queries created after 5/14/03 which
have the PeopleSoft 8.3 query naming standard will be copied into the new
payroll version 8. However, OSC will not test or convert these queries to
version 8 format. That will be the responsibility of agency users.
OSC is creating an Upgrading Queries Guide that will be issued to agencies by the end of July.
