New Blank Values Available in More Chartfield and Attribute Filters in November

In order to facilitate reporting for financial activity that is not posted to a specific chartfield or attribute, an empty value (labeled as Blank) will be added to the following filters in November:

  • Project
  • Activity Period
  • Function
  • Dept ID Site
  • Project Award/Parent
  • Project Use
  • Project Lab Owner

For example, choosing a Blank Activity Period value in the Transaction Detail Report will return a dataset in which no Activity Period was assigned to the department’s transactions. The new empty value will appear in the filters as a space followed by a dash and the label Blank, as shown:
