    First of all we need to check which for all PeopleSoft Object definitions where this field is getting used; Which should of course include records.

    Then we need to check for all the records if they are been used in any peoplecode events and all so that we will need to change the field value assignment logic if required.

    Third and very important get list of all the SQL records the field is part of as we would need to rebuild them.
