EDDIE Access and Setup
Any finance user who has been assigned the Distributed Financial Query User security profile has access to the EDDIE environment. Before viewing reports, please set up EDDIE by following instructions on the job aid titled FN Reports - EDDIE Setup .
To request a Distributed Financial Query User security profile, contact your User Security Contact (USC).
The GL Report Distribution Contact (GLDC) role is assigned to individuals for report distribution purposes. This role, assigned as an attribute of the Fund or Organization segments, is a mechanism to pull reports for whomever you identify to receive the reports. This role is different from the Financial Manager role, which was envisioned to be the Business Manager for an organization. To request GLDC roles, follow instructions in item 11 of the Request to Create Banner FOAP Segments or Index Codes form and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Use of the Asterisk (*) as Report Parameter
When entering report parameters, use the asterisk (*) as a wildcard when choosing to restrict the report query by other parameters. For example, you can run your detail operating ledger statements for all your funds and programs by specifying your organization code. In the parameter box, designate your six-digit organization code and specify an asterisk (*) in the fund, program, and ORG GL report contact fields. The resulting report will include a detail operating ledger statement for every FOP combination where the organization code is equal to the code you entered as a parameter.
ITD (Inception-to-Date) Distinction
The distinction between FIGL_Detail_Operating_Ledger_Statement and FIGL_Detail_Operating_Ledger_Statement_ITD is that Inception-to-date (ITD) reports display inception-to-date balances as opposed to year-to-date balances. The ITD reports are available for fund codes that are linked to a grant code; for example, grant funds, plant funds, federal agriculture funds, and those self-supporting and agency funds that are project-type activities.
For questions on financial information contained in these reports, contact your campus OBFS Accounting Office.
