University Overview Reports
You must have BOTH accesses below before you can run any Bear Finance Reports.
- You must have fund/organization access to some budgets.
- You must have Argos access (under finance folder) before you can run any of the reports
Argos access is granted separately from Fund‐Org access and controlled by the Information
Security Office. When a user is granted Fund/Organization (Budget) access (Approver,
Originator or View), that does not give them access to run Argos finance report. To
request for Argos Finance access, user MUST send an email to InformationSecurity@MissouriState.edu to request access.
All reports below use ODSPROD database connection, so you must use your ODSPROD password to connect and run the report.
If you cannot remember your database password, you can change it by changing your database password. If you cannot remember the username for your Database Account, contact the Help Desk and they can provide it to you. Your database user name is the same for both PROD
& ODSPROD and usually your first initial followed by your last name (example BBEAR
for Boomer Bear). If your database account displays an error message that the account
is locked, please contact Information Security Office for assistance with unlocking
