Division of Accounting & Auditing
Office of Comptroller
|SUBJECT:||YEAR 2000 CHANGES|
As requested in the SAMAS User Meeting we will implement changes for the Year 2000 on a quarterly basis. Effective October 1, 1997, the following transaction screens will be modified to be Year 2000 compliant:
|Transaction 11 - Master File LTD Adjustments|
|Transaction 20 - Allotments|
|Transaction 21 - Appropriations, Approved Budget, Estimated Revenue|
|Transaction 22 - Releases|
|Transaction 57 - Overpayment of Taxes|
|Transaction 75 - Flow-through Expenditures|
|Transaction 95 - Sub-recipient Expense|
We are working to have screen formats for these transactions available on our Web page at http://www.dbf.state.fl.us. If you need a hard-copy of the format, call the SAMAS Help Desk at 487-2627 or Suncom 277-2627.
Also effective October 1, 1997, the transaction history file on the informational data base will have mirror date fields which are Year 2000 compliant. The existing date fields as well as their corresponding expanded date fields will be populated. Therefore, if you feel you need to make changes to your report programs because of sorts, comparisons or calculations using date fields, you may do so using the new field. Otherwise, your reports will continue to run without modifications.
On October 1, 1997, the Vendor Client, Vendor Employee, and Vendor Regular (not Statewide for SPURS users) processes and files will be compliant but no screen changes were necessary. The informational data base will carry mirror date fields which will be populated. The expansion option, expansion set, and director manager files already carry compliant dates on the informational data base.
If you have questions concerning our Year 2000 modifications, please call the Help Desk at 487-2627 or Suncom 277-2627.
