FV: Enable Lockbox Finance Charge Application

If set to Yes, the Lockbox Finance Charge Application process automatically generates after the validation phase of AutoLockbox.

FV: Verify Reimbursable Performance Dates

Required to enable the performance date validation in the Purchasing Distributions window and the Payables Invoice Distribution window.

FV_DEBUG_FLAG

If set to Y, debug messages are printed in the log files created by the Federal Financials module.

FV: Enable Automatic Numbering

If set to Yes, automatic numbering enabled for pay reasons with sequence assignments

FV: CCR XML Server

This value is the URL provided by Defense Logistics Information Services (DLIS) when an agency completes CCR XML registration and is required to use CCR XML integration.

FV: Agency Proxy Server

If an agency uses a proxy server for internet connections, this value is the URL of the proxy server.

FV: CCR Certificate File

Every SSL connection has a chain of certifying authorities. The CCR Certificate file can either be requested from CCR or generated manually through a web browser either by establishing the chain hierarchy and exporting all the certificates or by creating a chain file.

FV: CCR XML Username

This value is provided by DLIS when an agency completes CCR XML registration and is required to use CCR XML integration.

FV: CCR XML Password

This value is provided by DLIS when an agency completes CCR XML registration and is required to use CCR XML integration.

Flexfields: Shorthand Entry

If set to Yes, GL aliases are enabled. If set to No, GL aliases are disabled.

MO: Security Profile

This value is used by the windows and processes that are multiple organization access (MOAC) enabled and must be defined prior to accessing these modules.

FV: Limit Bulk Format to 10 Treasury Symbols

This value is used when processing the Bulk Treasury payment formats: US Federal Bulk CCPD Format, US Federal Bulk NCR Format, US Bulk PPDP Format, US Federal Bulk Salary and Travel NCR Format. If the value is Yes then these payment instruction files can only contain 10 treasury account symbols, otherwise there is no limit.

FV: Include Adjusting Activity in YTD Beginning Balance

This value is used in FACTS I processing to determine if adjustment activity should be included in year to date beginning balances in reporting. If the value is not defined it is assumed to be a value on No and therefore no adjustment activity is included in the year to date beginning balance.

FV: RECLASSIFICATION_JOURNAL_CATEGORY

Identifies the journal category used to identify reclassification of cash activity transactions for the P224. If you define this profile option at the application level or the responsibility level, then set it at the application or responsibility level where P224 is submitted (Federal Financials application or the Federal Administrator responsibility).

FV: Use Transaction ID for Debit Memo Creation

The default value is N and once this profile is changed to Y, you cannot change it back to N.

Note: You must close all your finance charge debit items before you set the value to Y.

If the profile value is set to N, then the transaction number of the finance charge debit memo generated will be the transaction number of the original invoice appended by the finance charge suffix.

Important: If the original invoice has a transaction number greater than 17 characters in length, then the debit memos can have duplicate transaction numbers. In this case you must set the profile value to Y.

If the profile value is set to Y, then the transaction number of the finance charge debit memo generated will be the transaction ID appended by the finance charge suffix. The Netting process also will look for the debit memos which have transaction numbers as the transaction ID with finance charge suffix.
