  • First click on Tools to expand (you may need to scroll within the navigator), then click Reports and Analytics.

  • The Reports and Analytics page is displayed.


Step Two

Navigate to the Transactional Reporting Table of Contents, where the Outstanding P-Card Transactions Report is located.

Example – report completed with full list of data


Step Four

Narrowing down the Project Financial Summary report

  • You may use the following prompts to narrow the report to only display projects relevant to your needs.  It is recommended at minimum to prompt by project number, project organization or principal investigator.  Note, in most cases you can leave a prompt blank or leave the default in any or all prompts. 
    • Project Number – Project number
    • Project Organization Name – Organization name of the department assigned to the project
    • Principal Investigator – Principal investigator (PI) assigned to the project
    • Accounting Date From – Beginning accounting date for the transactions
    • Accounting Date To – Ending accounting date for the transactions
    • Transaction Date From – Minimum transaction date
    • Transaction Date To – Maximum transaction date


The Accounting Date is when the transaction is recognized and posted to the general ledger (GL). The Transaction Date is when you performed the transaction. For example, you may receive an order for supplies on March 25th, but the payment was not posted to the GL until April 10th. The Transaction Date filter is applied to all the fields containing a dollar amount.
