For all fiscal years beginning with FY 2012, transactions to park all budget transfers, to change parked budget documents, and to cancel parked documents will be combined into one transaction. This means transaction FR69 will no longer be used to park budget transfers after FY 2011. The new transaction FMBB (Budget Workbench) is very similar to formerly used budget transactions, but you should familiarize yourself with the new process by viewing the Transfer Budget (FMBB) tutorial linked below.
Things you should know
· Additional budget transaction codes will also change with FY 2012, although the processes remain the same. A crosswalk of the new codes is available at the link provided below.
· In order to view budget documents created in FMBB, use transaction FMEDD (Display Entry Document).
· The new field Grant will be visible in the transaction FMBB line item. Upon entry, this field will automatically populate with 99999. No action is required when completing the transaction.
· The transaction code for the “46” Available Budget Report for FY 2012 and beyond will be Y_BCS_80000046. The Y_DEV_80000046 will still be available for years prior to FY 2012.
· If you have set up user variants for the Y_DEV version of the “46” report, you’ll have to re-create them for the Y_BCS version.
