Use this form to view the audit trail of ledger transactions.

Each ledger transaction is part of a voucher. Whenever a voucher or group of vouchers is posted, an audit trail entry is created that has a unique numeric identifier. The entry includes automatically generated transaction text that identifies the origin of the entry. The entry also includes references to the user who created the entry and to the entry date and time.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.
