Step Three

Narrowing Down the Project Financial Summary Report

  • You may use the following prompts to narrow the report to only show data relevant to your needs. We recommend prompting by project number, project organization, or principal investigator.

  • Note: in most cases, you can leave a prompt blank or leave the default in any prompts.

    • Project Number – project number

    • Project Organization – organization name of the department assigned to the project

    • Principal Investigator – principal investigator 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 not post the payment to the GL until April 10th. The Transaction Date filter applies to all the fields containing a dollar amount.

  • When finished, click Apply.
