AR to Finance Daily Reconciliation Bucknell University Lori Wilson – Bill George – PA BUG – November 2005
Accounts Receivable Daily Reconciliation BANNER Accounts Receivable must be reconciled daily to the general ledger in BANNER. Script to Close Outside Cashier Sessions This is a Catseye process that closes all cashier sessions of users outside the Finance Office, specifically Bucknell Interdepartment Billing (BIB) users. Log into Catseye. Select the appropriate BANNER database (usually PROD unless running tests). At the Catseye Startup Menu, choose 11 - Finance Functions. From the Menu of Finance Functions, choose 1 - Close Cashier Sessions. Enter Printer Selection #: NOPRINT. Review on screen but do not keep. Close Cashier Sessions Each Cashier should balance and close their own cashier sessions. All cashier sessions should be closed in a timely fashion, but not necessarily before reconciling Accounts Receivable (except for TSRLATE on the day of billing, which MUST be closed). To determine if there are open cashier sessions, use the Cashier Supervisory Form (TGACSPV) Active Cashier Session Query.
Finalize Cashier Sessions To finalize the closed cashier sessions, perform from the Cashier Supervisory Form (TGACSPV). Status: change all status C sessions to Status F Dep No: enter the deposit number from the Current Account Daily Cash Reconciliation Form attached to the manila cashier session envelope (if applicable) After finalizing all closed cashier sessions, perform and. Sign and date the Current Account Daily Cash Reconciliation Form. Put Current Account Daily Cash Reconciliation Form in the manila cashier session envelope and give the envelopes for the day to the Cashier. Process Submission Several processes must be run using the Process Submission Control Form (GJAPCTL). NOTE: It is important to let each job submission start printing and check results (ex. TGRFEED) before submitting the next job submission.
TGRCSHR: Cashier Detail Report This is the cashier session daily totals report. It includes detailed breakdowns for all transactions within a session and lists the totals of all charges and payments within a session.

Perform and document job number. NOTE: You must WAIT for TGRAPPL to print before continuing. Discard paper output.
TGRFEED: Accounting Feed Process This report is the interface to the accounting feed process. Only cashiering sessions which have been finalized are fed. TGRAPPL (Application of Payments) is run before TGRFEED. Process: TGRFEED. Perform. Printer: finlp_4-2. Perform. Parameters and Values: 01Address Selection DateDD-MON-YY 02Address Hierarchy1XX 03 Records per feed document Perform. Perform and document job number. If TGRFEED Does not Process Some other processes on campus will cause TGRFEED to lock up. When this happens, someone from ISR must run a script that will stop TGRFEED from running. The script is documented in Dbit's BANORACL1 document and the name of the script for your reference is /admin/home/catseye/source/del_tgrfeed_deadlock.sql. This will be helpful to know when you call ISR to request that TGRFEED be unlocked.
If TGRFEED Populates GURFEED, but FURFEED Does Not Pass the Batch to Ledger Sometimes, when TGRFEED locks up, as discussed in the previous section, it populates GURFEED, but does not include a header record. If TGRFEED has locked up, you should check the GURFEED table to determine if there are ACTRECV records in the table with no GURFEED_REC_TYPE = 1. (the header record). Run Gurfeed-6x.bqy to see if there are any records in the table. Limit in the results to see if there is no header record. If you determine there is no header record, someone from ISR must run a script that will put a header record in the GURFEED table. The script is documented in Dbit's BANORACL1 document and the name of the script for your reference is /admin/home/catseye/source/create_gurfeed_header.sql. This will be helpful to know when you call ISR to request that a GURFEED header record be created.
TGRRCON: Accounts Receivable Recon This SQL*Report produces a report to facilitate reconciliation between Banner Accounts Receivable and BANNER Finance.
