Control Key for the Appropriation Table

Agency, appropriation year, appropriation number, appropriated fund, fund, organization code, program code, balance type, and fiscal year are all contained in the control key for the Appropriation table.

Balances of the Appropriation Table

Each month in the fiscal year represents a different column in the financial table. The fiscal month 01 balance represents cumulative balances for the month of September; the fiscal month 02 balance contains the cumulative balances for the month of October, and so on.

The amounts stored in each balance column are cumulative totals of all transactions posted to that record in that month.

For example, assume that in September, two transactions recorded an Appropriation Original Expenditure Budget. One transaction was $6,000 and the second was $3,000, so the total reflected for the month of September is $9,000.
