- The account string shown in the “Default Chartfield Values” section is the information that will default when you create an expense. The fund, program, class, budget ref, and department must be entered. Project code is optional. There is usually an administrative assistant or budget manager for each department who has this information. Once this information is set up, it will default to each expense when it is created.
