  4. Select the correct Schema from the drop down menu (note that the Schema can not be changed once you click the Start button) • Direct Trip – one destination or non-travel and charging time & expenses to case work or a project • Indirect Trip – one destination or non-travel and charging time & expenses to indirect labor & overhead • Multiple Dest Direct Trip – multiple destinations and charging time & expenses to case work or a project • Multiple Dest Indirect Trip – multiple destinations and charging time & expenses to indirect labor & overhead • If you are creating an expense report for a trip that was previously entered in SAP as a Trip Request, highlight the trip request by clicking on the gray box to the left of it. • Click the Start button to begin entering the expense report.

  5. Enter your Start and End Dates for your trip. If claiming per diem and/or mileage these need to be the exact date range for which you are claiming it.

If claiming per diem your start time should be 00:00 and end time should be 24:00 to calculate the correct per diem amount. • When filling multiple expense reports out for a single trip/detail, times must not overlap and must show a start time of 00:00 and an end time of 00:00. Only the final expense report should show 24:00 as an end time. For example, you are on a trip/detail from 4/11/10 through 5/7/10 and you need to complete weekly expense reports. So you would complete the following:  • Expense Report 1 (First): Start Date & Time:  4/11/10  00:00 – End Date & Time:  4/18/10  00:00 • Expense Report 2: Start Date & Time:  4/18/10  00:00 – End Date & Time:  4/25/10  00:00 • Expense Report 3: Start Date & Time:  4/25/10  00:00 – End Date & Time:  5/2/10  00:00 • Expense Report 4 (Last): Start Date & Time:  5/2/10  00:00 – End Date & Time:  5/7/10  24:00 • You do not need to change the fields that say Departure from Work and Arrival at Workplace Privileged and Confidential
