This page is intended for users of  SCT's Banner Finance Software Only! 

These are programs that we use to send Direct Deposit Notices via email.


The program scripts have UNIX commands that are run by using the HOST statement.  We use the HOST abbreviation of ! for our IBM RS6000.  Other servers may use the $ for this abbreviation.

If you are not on a UNIX server, then the underlying statements must be converted as well.  Most of these are just sending information to the user while running the script.  However, each program also removes files and the output files are changed via UNIX commands.


create_dd_audit.sql  Create the Direct Deposit Audit Table.  A one time script.


Creates Table: dd_audit

The dd_audit table will store the information from the Banner temporary table FATCKIN.


dd_audit.sql  Update the dd_audit table with values from the FATCKIN temporary table.  A simple report listing the transactions is sent to the user's monitor.


This program updates only the dd_audit tables.  No Banner tables are updated by this user script.


dd_email.sql  Create the email messages from today's dd_audit transactions.


dd_email_exceptions_print.shl  A script used to test for any email notice exceptions.  If any email addresses are missing a printed notice is created instead.  This script runs from within dd_email.sql


The following shows where the scripts are inserted into the standard user procedures:
