Viewing Reports

Once the user hits "Enter" from the Report Selection panel, the Report List panel appears. Below is a sample of a Report List panel for active reports. It will be different for each user since each user may be requesting different reports to view. The most common reports that will appear for departmental viewing will be the FBM090, FBM091 and the FBM061. These are the monthly financial reports. Note the column headings. They are described below. These headings are the same for the History List as well.

The user can navigate through the report by using several F keys and screen commands. The screen commands are placed on the "command" line found in the upper left hand corner of the report screen and is followed by an arrow, = = = >. It is after the arrow that the commands are placed.
