In order to facilitate reporting for financial activity that is not posted to a Flexfield or Project Manager/PI, an empty value (labeled as Blank) has been added to these filters. For example, choosing a DeptID and the Blank Flexfield value in the Transaction Detail Report will return a dataset in which no Flexfield was assigned to the department’s transactions. The new empty value appears in the filters as a space followed by a dash and the label Blank.
The addition of blank values in other chartstring filters is being investigated. Watch for updates on this effort in future editions of the Controller's Office Newsletter.
