University of Missouri PeopleSoft ChartFields Overview
2 General Ledger Official record of University’s budgeting and financial transactions Includes budget and revenue/expense transactions, encumbrances, assets, liabilities and fund balances FRS: maintains balance sheet information in General Ledger, revenue/expense transactions in Subsidiary Ledger PeopleSoft: maintains all in single ledger
3 ChartFields Used to classify accounting information in PeopleSoft Nine ChartFields allow for reporting transaction details Multiple ChartFields allow finer level of detail for reporting purposes
4 How Does This New Structure Affect You? If you process, reconcile, review, or analyze financial data, you need to be familiar with ChartFields and how your FRS accounts and subcodes map to the new ChartFields. Certain ChartFields are required on every transaction.
5 FRS/Chartfield Crosswalk Translation program to convert accounting information in FRS to PeopleSoft General Ledger Initially all accounting information will be entered into FRS and converted into PeopleSoft ChartFields Eventually all accounting information will be created in PeopleSoft
