NOTE: I'm sorry for neglecting this message for so long. A lot has been going on...

Prayer Request: After sixteen and a half years of marriage, I was legally divorced on February 12th of 2020 against my will. I feel the State of Arkansas made an incorrect decision that day. In addition, I feel the trial was not conducted properly; however, I chose to not appeal.

Regardless of what the State of Arkansas says, I still believe in my heart that I am married to Jennifer Ann. Please pray in Jesus' name for her return.

I was training for May 2020 Ironman in Tulsa, OK but it was cancelled due to COVID. I am now training for 2020 IM Flordia in November. I've been having some weird back issues that seem to be causing side effects. I may get better though. I can do the IM swim in a local lake, but I'm not sure if I'm up to the Ocean...

I do have a bit of a problem with my temper and I have other troubles; however, I still believe that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior and I plea to him for his mercy regardless of what others might think of me.

Even though I presently live in Northwest Arkansas, I watch Bishop T.D. Jakes' Potter's House sermons on YouTube each Sunday Morning. That dude can seriously preach!!! Also, the musicians at Potters House are awesome. Check it out!!!

I hope to return to First Baptist Fayetteville some day but I'm not sure if that is in the near or distant future...
This site is designed to work with *modern* HTML5 browsers like Microsoft Edge
IE10 or later also works pretty good. As of April 23, 2016 Firefox and Chrome still don't:
  1. seem to have official support for GridBased Layout but it seems to be comming soon
  2. seem to support JPEG-XR even though I believe it is a formal ISO Standard under an open format: ISO/IEC 29199-2:2012
Other browsers may also have variying support, but I *personally* consider Microsoft Edge, Chrome and FireFox the major browser vendors of present time.

PeopleSoft SQR - Process Request Shows Status of 'INITIATED' or 'PROCESSING' but No Longer Running

PeopleSoft SQR - Process Request Shows Status of 'INITIATED' or 'PROCESSING' but No Longer Running

I've been goofing around on my bicycle too much to take interest in blogging, but I recently ran across an interesting PeopleSoft error with a simple solution.

I got an SQR from Oracle that was apparently meant to be run only from SQR Express (or similar tool) in interactive mode. Unfortunately, my institution wanted to run it in the Web Based PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture (PIA). I was unfamiliar with SQR but I made the minimal changes necessary so I could launch the SQR from a Run Control within the PIA. Then I ran it and got a weird error...

I kept getting the error "Process Request shows status of 'INITIATED' or 'PROCESSING' but no longer running." in my Message Log and the Process Monitor status always showed a status of Error. The funny thing is that the SQR from Oracle seemed to be working just fine. I searched around the internet and thumbed though a book I had on hand [1] for a solution but didn't find exactly what I was looking for. Eventually, I started looking through the working SQRs my institution had and noticed StdAPI-Term wasn't being called at the end of the SQR. I put that line in at the end of my SQR and Viola! The error went away.

Granted it wasn't exactly that simple. There are a *few* things you also have to do *in addition* to calling StdAPI-Term like maybe including setenv.sqc and calling stdapi-init [1], but I had already done that previously and the final thing that got rid of the error was the StdAPI-Term call. So if you are getting the error mentioned in the title of this article, check and make sure your SQR matches the simple form mentioned in [2] and make sure you have a "Do stdapi-term" statement at the end of your SQR.
