USAS Coding Instructions

85 Vendor Transaction Inquiry

Inquiry only. The Vendor Transaction Inquiry (85) screen provides a multiple record inquiry into the accounting event (AE) table based on the vendor/payee number, agency, document type (the first digit of the current document number), current document number and/or transaction effective date. This screen displays up to six transactions at a time. Additional transactions can be viewed by using F8 to scroll forward. The transactions are in effective date order, starting from current to oldest.

This screen can be used to respond to vendor/payee questions regarding status of payments. Only transactions with vendor/payee numbers are displayed on this screen.

The 85 screen pulls information from either the active or inactive AE table, depending on where the transaction is stored.

Note: For detailed field definitions, see the descriptions for the Transaction Entry screens.

NEXT RECORD NO (Optional for recall)
Enter the number that correlates to the row in which a desired record is displayed, or leave blank to default. This field allows a user to jump to a specific record rather than scrolling through the results one page at a time. The VEND NO and AGY fields must also be completed to recall records.

VEND NO/MC (Required for recall/Optional for recall)

Note: This is a split field. The first field is the vendor/payee number (VEND NO), and the second field is the vendor/payee mail code (MC). VEND NO is a required field, and MC is an optional field.

Enter the 11-digit vendor/payee number. The vendor/payee number must be either a valid TINS or USAS vendor/payee number. USAS vendor/payee numbers start with a zero and cannot be used to process payment-generating transactions. TINS vendor/payee numbers start with a 1, 3 or 7.

Note: TINS vendor/payee numbers starting with 2 were based on a Social Security number (SSN) or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). Effective March 2014, the Comptroller’s office replaced SSN- or ITIN-based numbers starting with 2 with randomly assigned numbers that start with 7. Either the old number starting with 2 or the new number starting with 7 may be entered to recall records for a vendor/payee.

Enter the three-character alphanumeric mail code in the MC field. Entering a mail code provides a starting point for the vendor/payee data recall. If a single vendor/payee has multiple mail codes, entering a specific mail code does not limit the data recalled to just that mail code. If the MC field is left blank, all mail codes are recalled.

AGY (Required for recall)
Enter the three-digit financial agency number assigned to the agency.

DOC TYPE (Optional for recall)
Enter the one-character alphanumeric document type or leave blank for all document types. Document types are centrally defined on the Document Control Profile (33).

ENDING EFF DATE (Optional for recall)
Enter the six-digit effective end date (MMDDYY) or leave blank to recall from the current date back. The ending effective date provides a reference point for the system to select a data set for a specified time period. The system then searches that data set for those accounting events matching the remainder of the control key. Only transactions with the entered effective date or earlier will be recalled.

VEND NAME (System generated)
Displays the vendor/payee name.

CUR DOC (Optional for recall)
Enter the eight-digit current document number. If a current document number is entered, only transactions related to that document are recalled, and the DOC TYPE field is populated with the associated document type.

S (Optional)
Enter any single character in the selection (S) field to select a transaction. This field allows for the selection of a specified transaction for further inquiry using the function keys at the bottom of the screen.
