General Information About Financial Data Tables

The entire financial data table uses configurable fiscal periods, where the fiscal year can begin any day of the year and can use as its periods the familiar twelve Gregorian calendar months, or the fiscal year can reflect any standard or non-standard retail calendar. Only fiscal periods that your administrator has generated are displayed. For information about generating fiscal periods, see the Generating Fiscal Periods document.

The approved budget, forecast and actual costs, and forecast and actual benefits exist as part of a financial data table, not independently. They cannot be edited directly on the Financial Data page, but authorized users can edit them on separate pages accessed from the financial data table.

Unlike financial summaries, if the start period of a proposal or project that has not been started is adjusted, the forecast costs and benefits in the financial data table are not adjusted accordingly.
