What is Pace-Trace?
Most professionals involved with PeopleSoft have seen a SQL trace file at one point in their career. Although extremely valuable, extracting the useful information from this file can be a significant hurdle. Loading the file in Pace-Trace, this information is made available to you in a clear format, even if you are not a programmer.
