Report Naming Conventions

The reports delivered with PeopleSoft applications are identified by a seven- or eight-character code, for example, AMV2060.XNV or APC1030.RPT. Each report name is broken down into the following parts:

The first two letters of the code identify the PeopleSoft product:

Abbreviation

AM

AP

Accounts Payable

AR

Accounts Receivable

BD

Budgets

BI

Billing

GL

General Ledger

GM

Grants

IN

Inventory

PC

Projects

PO

Purchasing

The third letter in the report name denotes the reporting application in which the report was created:

V

PS/nVision

C

Crystal Reports

S

SQR

Q

PeopleSoft Query

Following the first three letters in the report name are four numbers, the first two of which reflect the functional area:

00

Basic reports

10

Business unit and ledger reports

20

Consolidation reports

30

Inquiry reports

40

Table reports

50

Multicurrency reports

70

Journal entry processing reports for Crystal Reports and Query Reports only, a hyphen follows the four numbers.

The three-character file extension at the end of a report name can help you identify the application that created the report and, in several cases, the format of the report:

PS/nVision-Layout

.XLS

PS/nVision-Instance

.RPT
