Quick Links to SIMBA Resources
- OPP's Cost Centers with IBIS legacy budget numbers
- OPP's Internal Orders with IBIS legacy budget numbers
- SIMBA GL accounts with IBIS legacy object codes (GURU)
Instructions: Click the Global Expand button in the lower right-hand corner of the screen and use CTRL-F to search the list for old object codes to find the corresponding GL Account(s). PLEASE NOTE: that an old object code may have multiple GL Accounts (and vice versa). The first result of the search may not be your best choice. Conduct a thorough search. You can also search (CTRL+F) for specific words such as "cellular" or "landscape" to find the appropriate GL Account(s), again with the caveat that there may be multiple results.
