When viewing a transaction window such as an order or invoice, the History Records icon Image:Icon_History24.png will be enabled.

Windows can be defined as Maintenance, Query Only or Transaction windows. Transaction windows typically open with only the current records showing - or what is referred to as the 'Current Day'. If there are no current records, a Transaction window may open displaying a new record ready to be entered.

Clicking the History Records icon (or the menu or shortcut) will open a small dialog near the History Records icon as shown below.

The buttons on this dialog will quickly enter a query for the relevant period of time and all transactions (limited by the users max query records setting) in that period will appear.

The Product Info and Business Partner Info windows include a History Records icons which will bring up the past history of prices by Business Partner or Product respectively. In other words, if a particular product is selected in the Product Info window, the History Records button will bring up the price history of all the Business Partners who bought the product and the price they paid. For Business Partners, the Price History is a list of all the products purchased from or sold to that partner and the prices.
