The extract option for a Banner form has been made available to those individuals with query privileges to said Banner form. Though the data will be stored in an electronic format outside of Banner, the information is not to be shared with individuals that do not have current query privileges to that data. In addition, all electronic storage of this information should be properly secured to protect the information from inappropriate access.
Using the Data Extract feature of Banner will allow a user to download information from an on-line form to an Excel spreadsheet. Currently, three forms (FGIBDST, FGITRND, and FGIOENC) have been set-up to use this feature.

Before you begin using data extract you need to get the templates that you will use from the accounting web page shown below:

http://www.marshall.edu/accounting/uwforms.html

Scroll down. Look in the “Banner Related” section and save the templates shown to your computer. Save them where you will be able to find them quickly. We will use these later.

If you have any problems downloading these templates from the web, please contact Selah Wilson.

TIPS FOR EXTRACTING DATA

When extracting data from these on-line forms, remember that information contained in these on-line forms is current for all transactions that have been posted year-to-date at the time you are viewing the form.

If expense information is needed for a particular month, you may retrieve the information by going to FGIBDST and select “Transaction Detail Information” (FGITRND). Select “Rollback”. On the first line of information, delete the account code if you want to see all transactions or enter the particular account code you are investigating. In the block labeled “Period”, enter the fiscal month you want information on (July=01, August=02, etc.). Do “Control” “Page Down”. In the block labeled “Field Code”, type in “YTD”. Click on the “F8” key. This will extract all transactions for that particular fiscal month for the requested account codes.

Neither the FGIBDST nor FGITRND forms allow for year-to-date information to be requested as of the end of a particular month. You may want to extract each month separately and then build a year-to-date spreadsheet with that information.
