Creating Establishments

Some expense types are associated with establishments. For example, if the expense type is Airfare, possible values for the associated establishment include Air Canada and British Airways. Both expense types and establishments are administered as lists of values. Each establishment value (EXP_ITEM_ESTAB) must be a child of a particular expense type value (EXP_ITEM_TYPE).

The following procedure explains how to create a new establishment value.

  4. Note the values for each field in a sample record.
  5. In the List of Values, create a new record.

  7. In the Display Value and Language-Independent Code fields, enter the name of the new establishment type.
