rather than the Employee tab, and then type the employee’s name (last name first, with no commas), and, depending on the type of reimbursement, click either the
Start/Cont Travel or Start Non-Travel menu options to the left.
The Dept field indicates the five-digit Institutional Research Department Code associated with the employee. This information is drawn from the Human

Payroll Office, rather than Human Resource Services.) Graduate students and XH employees will have 99999 or 00000 as their department.
The Rmbrs # field is blank at this point, but will be populated after clicking the Continue button. The Rmbrs # will be the reference number

The Date defaults to a blank field, but will be changed on a subsequent screen.
The Rqstn # field is blank at this time, but will be populated later if an Air Ticket Requisition is completed. The Rqstn # will be the reference
number that appears on your departmental statement for the air ticket expenses. If no Air Ticket Requisition is created, the Rqstn # field will remain
The ? Help icon to the top right provides access to a Help menu designed for that particular screen. You can also call Dave Baker (515) 294-1940 or Jane
Houk (515) 294-5180 for assistance.
If you have a small monitor, you can free up nearly an inch of vertical space by clicking on the Hide Tabs icon. Click the Show Tabs icon to return
to the original setting.
