What is ARVID and how does this differ from Finance subject areas?

ARVID was created for Accounting Reporting views. It contains data from Accounts (COA), Assets, GL, Object Codes, Purchasing, Vendors and KFS Document Routing. BFS created the purchasing views to be able to connect Requisitions, POs, Receiving, and Payment Requests which are all related KFS documents. This information can also be found in the Finance Subject Areas views, but the report writer will need to connect the information (whereas much of this is done for you in ARVID).
