Preserving Siebel Marketing Segment Descriptions
Upgrades from: Siebel 7.0.x and 7.5.x.
Environments: 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.
When upgrading from a prior release of Siebel Marketing to Siebel 7.7 or later, the database upgrade overwrites the Description field for all Segment records (S_CALL_LST.DESC_TEXT) with the string "DO NOT USE: Segment from previous release." If you want to preserve segment descriptions, migrate the existing descriptions to another text extension column before running the upgrade.
