iSee Do I Have Defective PTFs on my System?

Back to Package

Defective PTFs, not something we talk much about and certainly not something that happens very often, but from time to time a PTF is created that we are required to mark as defective. When that happens, best practice is to get the replacement PTF on and approved at soonest possible time.  Best to be sure what ever the problem of the defective does not effect you!  This iSee will give you a script you can start using today. But it also take you though the journey, step by step, call a web page, digest the data on the page and turn into relational data. Compare that data to the PTFs currently on your system to see if you have Defective PTFs with no corrective PTFs applied.
