Documentation :|: BEN Balances Report Documentation :|: Quick View
* Return to Quick View List
The 304.BUD report provides a listing of
all of the account combinations within a given CNAC that have a
budgetary control of 1' (funds checking on a year-to-date
basis at the ORG/FUND level) and that have a negative budget
balance available (BBA) as of the specified accounting period.
The accounts on this report are for the unrestricted net asset
class only (NAC = 0'). The purpose of the report is to
identify those accounts that are failing funds checking so that
the appropriate corrective action can be taken.
Options are provided to allow users to list
the accounts by ORG or to list accounts in descending order by
the negative BBA amount (that is, highest negative BBA to lowest
The report break determines the page break and the first level sort for this report.
Report 304.BUD breaks at CNAC (Center Net Asset Class). A new page will be created for each unique CNAC
The report break is the first level of sort; in this case, CNAC is the report break.
Within CNAC, the 304.BUD offers two different sorts depending on the report selection option
specified. When the report selection option is 1', the report lists accounts by ORG and, within ORG, by FUND. When the
report selection option is 2', the report lists accounts in descending order by the negative BBA amount (that is, the highest
negative BBA amount to the lowest negative BBA amount). If more than one account has the same negative BBA amount, the
accounts are sorted by FUND within ORG.
No report template is used for this report.
However, the balances that appear on this report are calculated
based on the object codes in the TEXP summary template plus
overhead (object codes 5282 and 5292). This calculation Excludes
In addition to the Accounting Period, the
following parameters are provided for account selection on the 304.BUD report:
- Report Selection
- CNAC Low/High
- ORG Low/High
- Fund Low/High
The last three parameters work just like
they do for other General Ledger Reports (see Section 6, Report
Parameters). The following provides information on the additional
parameter (Report Selection) used in this report.

Special Note on selective reporting of
funds for the 304.BUD report: The FUND parameter allows
selective reporting on a single fund or range of funds for the
304.BUD report. It is important to remember, however, that the
304.BUD report will only produce output for those funds that use
a BC of 1' and that have a negative budget balance
available. If the user specifies a fund in the fund parameter
that does not use a BC of 1', the report will produce no
output. This may give a false impression that the fund in
question has no negative BBA balances. Therefore, when using the
FUND parameter on this report, make sure that the fund(s)
specified in the parameter all use a BC value of 1'.
The report heading includes the following

compared against your security profile. All ORGanizations in the range that match your profile will be returned to you in
This is a good place to look if you did not get the results you expected. Compare the list of
ORGanizations in this list against the parameter range you provided. If an ORGanization is missing, chances are it does
not exist in your security profile.
