In the course catalog, there are primary courses and when another course is essentially the same it is called an "Also Offered As" course. This is sometimes referred to as cross-listing, although in Pennant the correct terminology is "Also Offered As".
The COURSE_XLIST table contains all of the partners in the "Also-Offered-As" familiy. One course in each family is considered the primary and all others are secondary.
The warehouse COURSE_XLIST table is refreshed in batch mode from the Operational Data Store (ODS), which gets its data from the Banner database. The UPENN_ODS source tables are SATURN_SCBCRSE and SATURN_SCBSUPP. In the online Pennant system, the Also-Offered-As family number and primary/secondary indicator can be viewed on the SCADETL form, Supplemental Data tab, in the field "Course Identifier." Also-Offered-As relationships are maintained in the Course Inventory Management (CIM) system.
