Defining Column Exceptions
Define exceptions for your column if you want to highlight information in your report that requires immediate attention. For example, you can define an exception to "flag" the rows in your report where actual expenditures exceed your budget by $1,000 or more. When you request your report, you can choose to display only the exceptions
To define a column exception:
1. From the Columns window, choose Define Columns.
2. Choose the column you want to flag for exceptions.
4. Enter a single character to use to Flag exceptions in your report.
5. Select the Condition (< , > , =, <= , >= or < >) and enter the Constant to define your exception. You can enter as many conditions for your exception as you want. If you enter multiple conditions for your exception in this region, FSG flags only those amounts that meet all of your conditions.
To set up exceptions that flag rows that meet at least one, but not necessarily all, of the conditions you specify, you need to define as many columns as you want conditions but display only one of the columns. For example, if you want to flag amounts that meet one or more of five conditions, you must define five columns. Define the non-display columns with calculations that add the display column to itself. For example, if you display column 5, then for columns 6 to 9, define a calculation with an operator of + and a column sequence low and high of 5. Then assign each of the columns an exception flag and a condition.
