Setting Up Type, Area, and Subarea Information
Many records in Siebel Finance are associated with a type of product, such as a bank account, mutual fund, or security. Based on a record's associated product type, a corresponding list of values may be used along with the record, and in some instances, a subarea is assigned. As a result, you must set up the account categories and account types so that they are associated with the proper products.
For more information about setting up financial product types, see Product Administration Guide. For more information on setting up securities, see Process of Administering Securities.
