The Sub-Object document is used to define an optional part of the accounting string that allows you to create finer distinctions within a particular object code on an account. For example, your institution may have an object code for 'in-state travel' but you would like to track travel expenses at a greater level of detail. You could create sub-object codes to reflect 'faculty travel,' 'staff travel,' 'student travel,' or any other designation required.
Sub-object codes are specific to an account and a fiscal year and take on most of the attributes of the object code to which they report, including object code type and sub-type.
