In this article we consider issues which may effect budget and encumbrance amounts.  The symptoms are negative encumbrance amounts or encumbrance balances that rise instead of fall.

In budgets you may see values for Revenue or Liability that are expected to be Credit (Cr) amounts and are in fact Debits (Dr).

Use Note 1050920.6 How To Correct Misclassified Accounts in General Ledger, to verify what accounts are misclassified. This helps to resolve problems in the Actuals transactions. There are further notes mentioned in this that will allow you to identify other misclassified accounts.


The account is changed using Note 1050920.6  - Ex.  the account was a Liability and is now an Expense account.
