Using Include History



  1. When you navigate to the search page of an effective-dated page, the available page actions appear below the final search field.


    In this case, for Names, the Include History and Correct History page actions are available. If you want to be able to view all data row categories, but insert or change future rows only, the correct page action to select is Include History. This brings you to the component page in Update/Display All mode.


    Enter the desired information into the ID field. Enter

    In this example, this person has two rows because she was married in 2002 and changed her name. Notice that her last name used to be Briener.

    Step 5
  6. This same person is now going through a divorce and will be assuming her maiden name again. A future row of data needs to be inserted to reflect this new information.


    Click the Add Row button.

    Step 6
  7. Notice that 1-3 of 3 now appears in the scroll area.


    When you insert a new row into an effective-dated table, the data from the current row is copied down to the new row. This way, you can make any necessary changes for the new row without wiping out data that you aren't going to change.

    Step 7
