Event Summary

This webinar is designed for experienced users of passFINANCE modules responsible for financial reporting. It aims to familiarise users with Microsoft Query to extract information from the finance modules in the passFINANCE database. It will include hints and tips that will enable users to create and maintain spreadsheets linked to passFINANCE, allowing them to analyse data from one accounting period to another and refresh the live-data for up to date information.


We understand the importance and pressure placed on finance departments to analyse data in a variety of formats with ease over many accounting periods. In addition to all the standard reports that are available in passFINANCE we are aware of schools’ requirements to streamline both internal and external reporting. The course has been designed to concentrate on the passFINANCE modules with exercises from the Nominal, Billing, Purchase, Payroll modules although ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) can be used to extract data from any area of passFINANCE. This webinar will act as a refresher course for some and a learning experience for others.
