02 - 022 General Coding Conventions

General Coding Conventions

  • All funds have 6 characters

  • Character value, see full description below:

    • Campus designation in first character.

    • Fund type designation in second character.

    • Third character is campus designated

  • For sponsored programs funds, the second and third character provide recognition of the sponsor (See Procedure 02-023 USNH Grant Fund Coding Conventions for more details).

  • Be mindful that sort sequence will advantage/disadvantage users when using desktop applications (Excel) to manipulate down loaded data.

  • Try to avoid data entry gremlins such as:

    • # 0 vs. letter O

    • # 1 vs. I vs. letter l

    • E as the only character in the code, meaning all the other elements in the code are numeric (Excel thinks this is an exponential number)

  • Thorough coding conventions, enable efficient Banner look-ups/queries (use of % for wildcarding)
