In this article we consider issues that may affect 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).

You can use note <Note.1050920.6> How To Correct Misclassified Accounts in General Ledger, to verify what accounts are misclassified. This helps you 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>  which means that what was a Liability is now an expense account for example.
