Using Correct History



  1. In this example, a milestone for a student was incorrectly entered into the database. You have been asked to delete this row from the Student Milestones table. You can choose the Correct History page action from the search page, or select the page action once you have navigated to the component pages. You know you want to be in Correction mode, so you will select Correct History here.


    Enter the desired information into the ID field. Enter

     a valid value

    Step 1
  2. Click the Correct History option.

    Step 2
  3. Click the Search button.

    Step 3
  4. The Student Milestones page is displayed. As you can see by the 1 of 2 displayed in the scroll area, you are on the most recent row of data. This is the incorrect row that needs to be deleted. You can delete this row clicking the Delete Row button.


    Click the Delete Row button.

    Step 4
  5. A confirmation box appears for you to confirm that you are sure you want to delete the row of data permanently from the database.


    Click the OK button.

    Step 5
  6. Notice that the scroll area now displays 1 of 1, indicating that the row has been removed.

    Step 6
  7. As the confirmation box displayed on the previous screen stated, the delete occurs when the transaction is saved. That means you have one last step to take before permanently deleting this row from the database. To commit the changes to the database tables, the page needs to be saved.


    Click the Save button.

    Step 7

The database tables have now been saved with these changes. By using the Correct History page action to gain access to a component using the Correction action type, you can change or delete records without regard to effective-dating or row categories.
