Beginning July 1, 2011, transaction Y_BCS_80000046 (Available Budget) will be the option for viewing budget availability. When selecting this new report, remember to enter data in the or value fields below the Fund, Funds Center, and Commitment Item fields. The new report will allow you to scroll forward to the available budget column rather than going to another screen. It will also have double-click drill-down capability to line items rather than going through the menu bar.
