USAS Coding Instructions

81 Agency Object Selection

Inquiry only. The Agency Object Selection (81) screen provides users with the ability to view and scroll through a listing of agency objects for a selected appropriation year (AY). The listing is generated from agency-defined records in the Agency Object Profile (D11). If an agency object is entered in the STARTING – AGY OBJ field, the listing of agency objects recalled will start with the object specified. If no agency object is entered, all agency objects for the selected AY will be listed in numerical order. This screen will list all agency objects for the requested AY regardless of their status code or effective date.

The 81 screen can also be accessed from a transaction entry screen.

  • On the transaction entry screen, locate the cursor in the agency object field and press the F1 key to bring up the 81 screen.
  • To select an agency object, enter any single character in the selection (S) field to the left of the agency object.
  • Press the F4 key to return to transaction entry. The selected agency object will be carried to the financial transaction that is being entered.
