HUBS News: An Enhancement and Outage Information

March 16, 2017


Each year the Q2 Forecast and Budget-Final data is pushed to Harvard’s Data Warehouse (HDW), around March and June, respectively.  The data is sent by month for each account string and it has been rounded to the nearest dollar.  Now, since February 28, the data is rounded to the nearest cent.  The following table is an example of how the data for one 33 digit string could look in HUBS, and then how it would look in the HDW before and after the enhancement.  One can see in the example that the enhancement provides for more precise totals in HDW reports and queries:
