Run Controls

• A Run Control is the driver that needs to be created to run Budget Status Reports, Budget Transaction Details, etc.

• The idea of a run control is to create and save them so you can use them again without having to create the same criteria every month or week for the same data you want a report.

• Run Controls should be made for each type of report that you run.

• The names cannot include spaces.• They can not be renamed or deleted.


Page 18: PeopleSoft Financials Basic Navigation

Creating a Run Control • When you first go to run a

report, you will need a Run Control ID (since you have never created one at this point you will have to add a new value)

• Once you click add a new a Value, then you will have to name your Run Control. I recommend starting the name with the report name.

• If you already have a existing Run Control then you just need to click the name listed below search results.
