Access Problems

Enquiry Problems

  • How do I use the online Commitment enquiries ?
  • I used to receive a printed copy of our Project's monthly transactions, but this has been withdrawn. How do I get my monthly transactions online?
  • I need a subanalysis code to help with Departmental Accounts. How do I get one?
  • I run an enquiry but get a message "Can't access j:agrprod......." What's wrong?
  • I can run an enquiry but it doesn't include some Projects I think I should have access to.
  • My enquiry has brought back details of some transactions which I don't recognise. How do I find out more information about these?
  • The results of my enquiry extend beyond the edge of the screen and I have to scroll back and forth to read it, and I don't need some of the columns. How can I improve this?
  • I put in my criteria (Project, Period, etc.) and run a query, but I get no results back. Why?
  • I logged on this morning and I can see a new enquiry, but I can't run it. Where has this come from and why can't I run it?
  • I did a search on a particular Order Number but got no results. I know that it was a valid Order Number for our Department - what am I doing wrong?
  • Can I change the order in which columns appear?
  • When I query on transactions between two dates the system doesn't seem to accept it.
  • What do different "Budcodes" mean?

Hints and Tips

  • I have been asked to compile the figures for overtime / additions in our department for the past 4 months. Is there and easy way to extract this information?
  • I'm looking for a payment made to a particular individual. I don't have an invoice number nor a transaction number, where do I start?
  • Can I open more than one enquiry at a time?
  • I don't like the term "Resno" on my enquiry, can I change it to "Staff Number" as this is the term used in our department?
