3 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.
4 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.

It includes detailed breakdowns for all transactions within a session and lists the totals of all charges and payments within a session.

10 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 <Block Next>.Printer: ‘finlp_4-2’. Perform <Block Next>.Parameters and Values:01Address Selection DateDD-MON-YY02Address Hierarchy1XXPerform <Block Next>.Perform <Save> and document job number.If TGRFEED Does not ProcessSome 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.
11 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.

23 Correcting Student Deposit Errors If not done correctly, deposits will be out of Balance w/ledger There are three types of error that could occur while posting a deposit. The deposit could be posted for an amount less than the actual deposit, greater than the actual deposit, or to the wrong individual’s account. The procedures for correcting a deposit posted to the wrong individual or for more than the actual deposit are handled in the same manner.Deposit Recorded As Less Than Actual DepositTo correct this error, simply create a second deposit for the difference. It is important to note that at the time the deposit is released, each deposit is listed separately on the billing statement.
24 Deposit Recorded Greater Than The Actual Deposit Or To Wrong Individual There are 4 steps to this process after a deposit has been processed incorrectly. The steps are as follows:Release the entire incorrect deposit on the Student Account Detail Form (TSADETL).Post a negative deposit for the entire amount of the incorrect deposit on the individual’s account.On the Miscellaneous Transaction Form (TFAMISC), process the following entry:Debit: The deposit detail code (DEPE, DEPS, or DEPO)Credit: The deposit payment detail code (CKDP or CSDP)Amount: same amount used in steps 1, 2, and 3.Process the correct deposit.After step 3 the individual’s account is correct. Step 4 is needed to correct the accounting and balance the cashier session. In order for the cashier session to balance, all of these steps must be done in the original cashier session. If the entries must be done in another cashier session, everything must be noted since neither cashier session will then balance. The transaction processed through Miscellaneous Transaction Form (TFAMISC) will have a different source code.
