FAMIS Screen Fields Added for Maestro System

"Admn CC" and "Center CC" fields were added to FRS Screens 6, 50, 51 and SPR Screen 114 to provide campus codes for "Center" and "Administrator For" departments and subdepartments. There is also a help feature (using "?" or PF2 key) on the Dept: field.

SPR Screen 114 has two display options. It can be displayed with all the information on one screen, which is the default, or you may press PF6 PanOn to turn the panel display on and press PF11 to view two additional panels of information.

Alternate Banks

An edit has been placed on FAMIS screens that requires the Alternate Bank to be numerical or asterisks (*****).
