Single String Validation Tool

The Single String Validation tool provides an authorized LEA user the ability to enter a 19-digit SACS account code string to have the system verify whether it is a valid for the current fiscal year and entity.

If the account code string contain code combination errors, the system returns the invalid combinations allowing the user can revise accordingly. Note that only valid state defined codes, per the CSAM, should be used in the tool. Use of locally defined account codes will result in validation errors.
