FORITAH-HSC Transfer Allocation MyReport report:

This report will assist you in determining the type of entry needed, allocation or transfer.  This report is essential because it gives you the description that is required for transfer entries.  It will show you what index/account to use for both actual dollars and budget.  It will tell you whether the entry should be a transfer or allocation entry, or if the entry is not allowed.  It is located in folder F HSC Reports in your MyReports Directory.

The total on a journal voucher, known as the hash total, is the sum of the absolute value of all the debits and credits.  This is always twice what the total of the journal voucher charge is.  Each journal voucher must net to zero, so all the charges must equal all the credits.  Posted JVs can be found by using Banner form FGIDOCR.  To delete an incomplete JV that you originated, go back into the JV (FGAJVCQ is one form you can use), select "Record Remove" from the menu, and "Record Remove" again, to confirm the deletion.  You will use the same process to delete a complete JV, but first it must be denied.  To self deny the document go to Banner form FOADOCU and deny the document.  Anyone in the document's approval queue (Banner form FOAAINP shows the next approver) can also deny the document.  If the complete document has been posted, you will need to do a reversing JV.  You cannot delete a posted JV.

To delete a record from a JV you originated, the JV must be in incomplete status.  Go into the JV from a JV origination form (ie: FGAJVCQ).  Select Options/Transactions Detail Information.  Use the down arrow key to get to the record that needs to be removed.  Select Record, Remove.  Select Record, Remove again to confirm the deletion.  Modify the JV as needed when the unneeded record(s) have been removed, and complete it again.  This will put it back in the approval queues.
