FN - View Funding Edit Errors


The Funding Edit Error is a listing of employees with invalid funding/funding errors for the current payroll (known as PRDFLT - Payroll Default); or employees who have no funding for all or part of the payroll period for the current Pay Run ID (known as PRSUSP - Payroll Suspense).

Corrections need to be made whenever all or part of the funding is going to be charged to suspense funding, default funding, position-level funding (except employees in A80) and department-level funding (except for employees in A96). Priority should be given to correcting errors where employees have funding in suspense or their funding is marked as invalid. Employees whose funding is being charged to department-level funding are less of a critical funding priority.
