The screen shown above allows you to review the asset entry’s information in the AM Interface Staging tables; these are the final staging tables data resides in prior to being created as Asset entries in the AM module.  As with the earlier interface table, you can filter your search results by Business Unit and Load Status to only return “Pending” items for your college.  

The Load Transactions into AM Staging Process

This process will move any Pending items in the AM Interface Staging table to the AM module as Asset entries. 

  1. Enter an existing Run Control ID or click the Add a New Value tab on the Load Assets Request page to add a new value.
    • Enter a meaningful Run Control ID for the accounting entry creation process in the Run Control ID field.

Note: A Run Control ID is an identifier that, when paired with your User ID, uniquely identifies the process that you are   running. The Run Control ID defines parameters that are used when a   process is run. These parameters ensure that when a process runs in the   background, the system does not prompt you for additional values.
