PeopleSoft Financials

PeopleSoft Financials includes Accounts Payable, General Ledger and Asset Management and houses data supporting financial transactions generally recorded in the form of revenues, expenses, assets, liabilities and fund balances. This information is reported in the form of financial statements such as balance sheets, income statements, and budget variance reports.

PeopleSoft General Ledger Report Manager & Drilldown

Report Manager allows users to see all reports you are authorized to view.  You can then drill down on an individual cell within a report by clicking on it and using drilldown functionality. 

To drilldown on Excel reports, the Microsoft add-in DrillToPIA.xla file needs to be installed on your computer.  The add-in is provided by IS&T when you obtain General Ledger access.   Once the add-in is installed, the nVisionDrill menu will appear on your Excel menu bar.

For security reasons, the features of the Flash component have been disabled.

If you have additional questions on viewing reports or running drilldowns, contact your accounting representative in the Controller's Office.
