News Summary Webi training schedule changes – On-campus training taught by ONLC has been reduced to 4-5 offerings per year. New columns: SUBGROUP_1_TITLE, SUBGROUP_2_TITLE added to COURSE_INVENTORY New exit action D1-1 st Drop and associated entry action R1 -Readmitted In the warehouse, this looks like a leave of absence Implementing cross-division majors: NAS, NEG – added as NON-DEGREE PROGRAM values to DEGREE table Appears in APPROVED_ACADEMIC_PROGRAMS, DEGREE and not in DEGREE _PURSUAL_ALL_V New administrative structure in Arts and Sciences
Training Tip Consider Youtube for self-training videos on Webi. There are videos ranging from the basics to more advanced topics, and are a good alternative to the on-campus Business Objects training. www.youtube.com -> search for Web Intelligence 3.1 www.youtube.com Recommended SAP author: RimGeurts Stick with the 3.1 tutorials… we won’t be going to 4.0 for a while. Caution: Not all videos are produced by the vendor, nor in English Feel free to contact data administration with your training questions
Tips & FAQs Highlight From the FAQs & Tips page, a search for sort leads to the url listed above. The most efficient way to do this is with InfoView Interactive View mode, but it can be done in Webi too.

Tips & FAQs Highlight There are 3 ways to get to enrollment in courses and to course data in general; These are referred to as the AA, AB, and AC branches. Choose the branch based on your purpose for the enrollment data in that specific query/report. How to pick the correct enrollment branch in STDTCANQ http://www.upenn.edu/computing/da/dw/student/stdtcanq.html
Tips & FAQs Highlight AC Branch: If you’re just getting a list of everyone taking a course (or courses), and nothing else. Note in the diagram Enrollment joined directly to Person table. AB Branch: If you want people in a course AND you want to report on anything else happening that same term --- their majors, or their divisions/degree or dual degree status, their advisors, etc. The AB branch is the one used most often. Note in the diagram that to get from Enrollment to the Person table you must join through Degree Term and Degree Pursual. AA Branch: If you’re reporting on people in a course but you only want to see the ones who are counting that course towards a specific degree or appearing on a specific transcript. (Uses the “career pointers” in SRS to determine the enrollment assignments.) Note in the diagram that to get from Enrollment to the Person table you must join through Assignment and Degree Pursual. How to pick the correct enrollment branch in STDTCANQ
SRS online help says: “SRS uses this value to group courses in the Course Register in an order other than the subject area.” The codes appear on screen 125; the values appear on screens 1D2 and 1D3: In the warehouse, the subgroup text will be in the Course_Inventory table: COURSE_IDSUBGROUP_1_TITLESUBGROUP_2_TITLE EDUC241Undergraduate CoursesGeneral Education/Undergraduate Courses
In SRS, a student who exits with a D1 will have “Dropped” and the date placed on their transcript. But in the Data Warehouse, this person will look like a Leave of Absence. The leave flags will be set on all of the relevant tables (degree_pursual_all_v, degree_term_all_v, major_minor_term), and a row will be inserted into the Leave table.
A student who is returned from a D1 exit should be returned using the R1 entry action. In the Data Warehouse, the leave flags will be cleared out in the appropriate places, just like any other leave of absence, and the Leave table updated. (note: the only place you will see R1 in the warehouse is in the Student_APS table.)
Cross-division majors In the Approved_Academic_Programs table, you’ll see cross-division majors appearing like this: Note that you can no longer tell from this table that the BCHE major is administered by Arts and Sciences. In other words, this table tells you what students are allowed to major in; it does not tell you the administrative relationships between majors, divisions and schools.

The NAS and NEG degrees were created so that they can be used by the Academic Planning Worksheets. This is their only purpose, and although you may see some entries for NAS and NEG in the Approved_Academic_Programs table, students should not be matriculated into those degrees on screen 110 (and you should not see these in Degree_Pursual).
