A ChartField is a data field that stores accounting information, affects budget and is used for internal and external reporting. All accounting systems consist of codes used to identify transactions and to track financial activity. ChartFields are the codes in myUFL used to identify these financial functions. ChartFields identify received and expended funds and insure compliance with the contributor of those funds. This is done with a series of ChartFields called a ChartField combination. When combined correctly, ChartFields identify the impact of a financial transaction.
