SECTION 3.5.3 - SEARCH FOR AUDIT NO
USAGE: To find a transaction based on its audit number.
DISCUSSION: Each time you enter a transaction, anywhere within HiFinance, the system determines the next audit number. This number is unique to a batch of transactions and every transaction in that batch carries the same audit number. Eg. if you post a PURCHASE, each Debtor, Inventory and General Ledger transaction will carry the same transaction audit number. This number is displayed on the screen during transaction enquiries and is printed on most transaction reports. The SEARCH FOR AUDIT NO program searches through all the transaction files and prints list of all occurrences of an audit number. This function is particularly useful when you wish to find out where a transaction has posted.
When you start the program, you are asked:
ENTER TRANSACTION AUDIT NUMBER TO SEARCH FOR [______]
Enter a number from 1 to 999999 and press <Enter> or <F10>. HiFinance will then search for that number and present you with the report.
This function is also available through most transaction enquiry programs via the RELATE option. This is usually accessible via <F8>.
