78 Program Cost Account Selection

Inquiry only. The Program Cost Account Selection (78) screen provides users with the ability to view and scroll through a listing of program cost accounts (PCAs) for a selected appropriation year (AY). The listing is generated from agency-defined records in the Program Cost Account Profile (26). If a PCA is entered in the STARTING – PCA field, the listing of PCAs recalled will start with the PCA specified. If no PCA is entered, all PCAs for the selected AY will be listed in numerical order. This screen will list all PCAs for the requested AY regardless of their status code or effective date.

The 78 screen can also be accessed from a transaction entry screen.

  • To select a PCA, enter any single character in the selection (S) field to the left of the PCA.
  • Press the F4 key to return to transaction entry. The selected PCA will e carried to the financial transaction that is being entered.
