Processing Large Journals by Budget Check

Navigation: General Ledger > Journals > Process Journals > Budget Check Journals

This can be done when it’s stuck or to prevent it from getting stuck (in other words you can run it instead of running the Edit).  The reason this is helpful is because you can look at the process monitor and see when the budget check is actually completed, thus preventing  you from tripping on it and sending it into “I” status.

Required criteria: Journal should be 'editable' (open boxes), Journal Status 'V' = Valid, and Budget Status 'I' = Incomplete.

  1. The Budget Check Journals run control page displays.
  2. If you have run this process or report in the past, select the Find an Existing Value tab to enter an existing Run Control ID and select the Search button. If this is the first time running this process or report, select the Add a New Value tab to create a new Run Control ID and select the Add button. 
    • NOTE: It is important to note that Run Control IDs cannot be deleted. Do not include spaces in your Run Control. We encourage the Run Control ID to have the same process naming convention but unique to the step; because of this, including your institution code and a short process description in the Run Control ID is recommended--e.g., WA040_BUDGET_CK_JRNLS (College, Process).
  3. The Budget Check Journals Request page displays.
  4. Select the Process Frequency to Process Once.
  5. Enter a meaningful Description.
  6. Enter valid request parameters, such as:
    1. Business Unit.
    2. Source.
    3. Journal ID From and/or To Journal ID.
  7. Select the Save button.
  8. Select Run.
  9. The Process Scheduler Request page displays. Select OK to run the Commitment Control Budget or FS_BP process. Optional to select the Process Monitor link to view the status. Please refer to the Process Schedule Request steps for further instructions. Once the process runs to success, navigate back to the Journal ID for further processing as needed.
