    13. FGIBDST

    14. Query by Index, Orgn, Fund, Program, Account, Acct Type, Activity, Location or any combination of these elements by entering the element in the box. Query Specific Account by checking box and entering Account. Query may include revenue activity or not by checking or un-checking box. After entering data for your query, NEXT BLOCK.

    15. In this example, I entered the Index and Next Block. We can see all of the activity for the Business Office, by Account, by using the scroll bar at the right. The budget for this Index is shown, Year-to-Date activity, Commitments (encumbrances for salaries), and Available Balance. At this time only Purchase Orders over $25,000 are encumbered.

    16. In this example, I queried on Operating Expenses only. You would begin this process after you have done the Next Block to get to the bottom half of this screen. First, enter F7 to start the query. This blanks out all the data. Then enter 62% in the Account area, and enter F8 to execute the query. The result will be expenditures with Account codes beginning with 62. Note that the budget amount for Operating Expenses is entered under 62X99, with an amount budgeted for Contracted Services, Supplies, Communications, etc. In this example, you can see that the Business Office has spent $5,920.69 of the $22,500 budgeted for operating expenses.

    17. In this example, I queried on 612% to see budget and expenditures for hourly wages. Overtime, student wages, temporary employees would all be included in this query. In order to find my available balance, I will have to calculate the difference between the budget and YTD activity.

    18. OPTIONS ON FGIBDST Access these options by clicking on each one in the yellow area at the left of your screen. Return to FGIBDST by clicking on the red door at upper right.
