Entering Accounting Combinations
Entering accounting combinations (Company, Account, and Center) can sometimes be tricky. Before using a new accounting combination, confirm with your Accounts Payable that all three codes have been added to NCAS and that the entire combination has been validated. If you encounter an error message that the accounting combination is invalid, and the accounting combination was validated before 5pm the previous business day, follow the steps below to ensure that you can find the correct combination.
  1. Select 'Search for more...' from the 'Company' drop-down menu
  2. Click the 'Select' button next to '(no value)'
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for the ‘Account’ and ‘Center’
  4. Select 'Search for more...' from the 'Company' drop-down menu
  5. Search for the company code you wish to use and click the 'Select' button next to the code
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the 'Account' and 'Center'

Note: Using the above steps will ensure that you will be able to find a valid accounting combination. Often, even if you’ve used the accounting combination before, the data found in the drop-down menu gets outdated. Following the above steps will refresh the data in the drop-down menu. If you follow the above steps and are still unable to find the accounting codes or resolve any error messages related to the accounting information, call the NC E-Procurement Help Desk at 888-211-7440 option 1.
