Date upload




I have a district (or two) using the dates available in USPSWEB.  When you query the fields in the DATE domain there is a CODE_DESCRIPTION and there isn't a COMMENT header.  In USPSWEB there is a comment field.  Does CODE_DESCRIPTION= comment?  Also, I couldn't find anything in the reference manual for Dates.  Please remind me what "WAVE_FLAG" is and what it does.  Should it be WAIVE_FLAG?  If this is in a manual, please let me know where I can find it.

Hi Deb,

In the Date master file there are two available fields- Date Code and Code Description. This is where the Date codes are created.

In the Dates Detail record the Date Code and Description both come from the Dates Master record as they are both located in the Date Code Description field in the Date Detail record. The Comment field is an optional field that can be used for adding additional information if desired.

The Wave (incorrect spelling there is a JIRA issue USPSW-848 out there for the fix for the correct spelling (waive)) field gives the ability to wave a required date for an employee. If a date code is created that all employees are required to have stored on file, but an employee has previously met the requirement at another district, for example, the requirement for the date can be waved.

The information pertaining to the Date and Date Detail records can be found at the following URL's:

Date master-
Date Detail-

Web documentation-

There are further break downs of field explanations under the "Click here" prompt under certain sections pertaining the Codes and Dates.

Have a GREAT day!

Deb, I did some checking on USPLOAD and it does appear that the CODE_DESCRIPTION field is being used the for Comments. I am not sure if this is quite accurate. I am going to check with the programmer about this and I will let you know what I find out. Thanks, Lori
