Converting Your Current Data for an MLOV


This topic describes how to convert your current data for an MLOV. includes the following information:

After you configure Siebel CRM to use an MLOV, you use the MLOV Converter Utility to convert data for the current lists of values. The MLOV Converter Utility does the following:

  • For each column configured for an MLOV, locates values in lists of values in user data that the S_LST_OF_VAL table does not contain.
  • Inserts these values into the S_LST_OF_VAL table as inactive.
  • Modifies the display value of bounded columns to the language-independent code and sets the value for the Multilingual property to true.

  1. In Siebel Tools, delete all indexes that reference the columns you must convert.

    You will recreate these indexes after you finish the MLOV conversion.
