summary of transaction data is by account, cost centre, project. The details held are generally
actual amounts, budgets and commitments. Actual amounts are updated as and when
transactions are added but budget and commitment values are updated as scheduled jobs that
take place at intervals throughout the day. If an enquiry is run during an update, there is a
possibility that the results returned would not be accurate.

11.3.3 Balance Table Results
The Balance Table Results will appear as with any results. The difference being is that as it is a
Balance Table the user will not see each individual transaction but a total per account code
depending on the enquiry.
The user can also double click on any row of information to zoom in and find out more
information regarding this total. When this is done it will show the transactions that made up this
total. Further double clicking on these rows will allow the user to view more information.
Please note depending on the account code you wish to double click on you may not see any
more information. i.e. Salary account codes, budget account codes. Subtotals
Agresso allows the user to subtotal and totalling when using enquiries. When choosing the
enquiries the user must select the subtotal option for the particular field required. When
subtotals are included in the enquiries, addition lines (Σ,Σ1, Σ 2 etc.) are inserted in the results
tab showing the subtotals that have been requested in the set up tab.
The user can adjust the level of detail shown in the results tab by using the forward and back
buttons on the toolbar.

Related to sub-totalling is the ‘aggregated’ box on the ‘set up’ window. Ticking this box
compresses the enquiries output so that only one row appears for each unique column
combination; however, no zoom command is available to extract further detail. Aggregated
enquiries are very useful if the user wishes to see high-level balances of a large number of
transaction lines. However, if doing this type of enquiries it is usually more efficient to use
balance table enquiries.
