Help for Assets Queries
Overview. Assets data is extensive, and a listserv and
adhoc meetings are available to help you query the Warehouse and retrieve
Assets data efficiently and effectively.
Whenever possible, canned queries and reports are provided to give you
standardized perspectives on Warehouse data. Before creating your own
query, check to see if a canned query or report already exists for the
information you want. Assets corporate documents are available in the "BEN Assets" folder/category
in the Business Objects repository.
Subscription to the listserv. When you are granted access to the
Assets data in the Warehouse, a subscription is automatically
set up for you to participate in an E-mail listserv called ASSETS-WH@LISTS.UPENN.EDU.
(Those with subscriptions to the list are called list members. If any
member sends an E-mail note to the list, every member of the list receives
When you have a question. If you have a question about the Assets data, please send E-mail to the
list -- and if you have the
answer to a list member's question, please E-mail your reply to the list
so all the members can benefit from the discussion.
The list is also the place to send E-mail if you notice that some documentation
needs updating. For documentation published on the Web, please specify
the URL for the documentation that needs to be updated. For Business Objects
documentation (help for Objects), please specify the Universe, Class,
Notification about general and special meetings. From time to
time, notes are sent to the list to invite list members to general meetings
to discuss the Assets data in the Warehouse, or to special
interest group meetings to discuss specific issues, such as joining payment
and account balance data.
