Upgrading Siebel Purchase Orders

Upgrades from: Siebel 7.0x to 7.5x only.

Environments: Development, production test, production.

Platforms: Windows, UNIX, IBM z/OS.

This topic is part of an upgrade process. See How to Perform a Siebel Database Upgrade.

If you are upgrading from Siebel 7.0 to 7.5, you must run a utility to update the Transaction Amount field in Payment Lines that have Purchase Order as the payment method. The utility requires the .srf that you compiled after upgrading your development environment.

The utility performs the following steps:

  1. Creates a new Order Entry business object.
  2. Creates an Order Entry business component and a Payments business component.
  3. Checks all order records and looks at the Payment Method of corresponding Payment Lines.
  4. If the Payment Method of a Payment Line is Purchase Order, it updates the Transaction Amount field to Order Total.

To update the Transaction Amount field in Payment Lines

  • Enter the following command:

    Windows: SIEBEL_ROOT\bin\pmntupgd /u USERNAME /p PASSWORD /l LANG /c CFG_FILE /d DATA_SOURCE



    • USERNAME is the Siebel user login name
    • PASSWORD is the Siebel login password
    • LANG is the language used
    • CFG_FILE is the configuration file used to launch the application
    • DATA_SOURCE is the data source used from the .cfg file
