Hi ....

We've in the middle of doing the same thing for a BPCS customer in Ohio who is also moving from BPCS to Oracle. So, we've got this process and the data connections mostly memorized. Give us a call if you like. We have a NoExcuses money-back guarantee on the professional work we do.

Another potentially useful idea is to clean up the data in the BPCS environment before investing the effort to move it. An example of something not to move would be obsolete item numbers. We've got some BPCS database janitorial tools described here http://www.unbeatenpathintl.com/2.3bw/source/1.html that greatly aid the clean-up process.

We also have BPCS reference manuals that would get you going. The Overview book would be a good start for you. Go here: http://www.unbeatenpathintl.com/bpcsmanuals.html and select the BPCS version that is pertinent.

Warm regards,
Milt Habeck

Subject: [BPCS-L] BPCS newbie seeks to learn its DB structure, table names,etc.

Hello! I am a contract Business/Systems Analyst who has been called upon to analyze data requirements of an Oracle installation, and identify how the tables/data elements in an existing BPCS database can best be mapped for importation into Oracle. I need to extract the BPCS data as flat files. Any BPCS Admin. documentation the client ever had is long gone.

Can anyone suggest how/where I might learn the basics of BPCS' database structure, table names, relationships, etc.?

Thanks so much!
