Summary of 3/8/01 G/L Team Meeting
Attendees: Ben Martin
Excused: Dave Adkins
Task: The G/L team was divided into three groups to complete the assignment of
relating PS data to UD Existing data by April 1. Each group will compare the
data tables in PS with the data element tables in GA. The groups are as
follows: Ben and Karen - GA Gadescfile , Cathy and Linda – GA Gabalfile,
and Tim and Dave – GA Srtmat.
At this meeting Ben and Karen presented examples comparing the UD Gadescfile with PS SUV for comments from Jeff. Jeff agreed with some of our findings and some of them we will continue to explore in PS.
Jeff responded to some of the examples with the following remarks:
Cathy and Linda presented questions about PS Inquiry process. Jeff explained that this is a process that runs in the background. The information requested goes away after you run the query. A work file generates itself and disappears. Cathy and Linda thought this PS process compared to UD Bal Cur Bal in the data element Gabalfile. In PS you have to use summary calendars, summary ledgers, and time spans to report cumulative data.
Jeff requested the team to include in our comments directions to find the panels, fields, or records in PS that we are comparing to UD information. He also concluded that we are all moving in the right direction comparing UD information with PS.
We will meet again on 3/22/01
