Transaction History Report



This report creates a transaction history for selected periods and lists the individual transactions within those periods. The information available in the Summary Activity Inquiry option of the Account Maintenance task is shown. You can create a history report on one account or a range of accounts as well as create a report showing detailed information or a summary of information. The report can be run at any time, and should always be run as part of the period end processing.

​Understanding Wildcard Masks

Certain tasks allow for the input of an account wildcard to enable you to select accounts that have common numbering as part of their identification. The wildcard can use the ‘?’ and ‘-’ characters; the '?' represents a single character, and the dash '-' is a literal. For example, assume an account mask set to 000-000, as is the case with standard demo data. If you want to select all accounts that end with '1', use the wildcard mask ???-??1. The question marks stand in place of the account digits; the dash is located as expected in the mask.
