Print Range of Audit Files (ttaad4461m000)

Use this session to print the content of audit files. These files contain all the logged table transactions.

Note: 
  • The audit files only contain information about table fields for which audit trail is activated.
  • You can print an audit file only if these conditions are met:
    • Printing is allowed for the audit file: that is, the Printing allowed check box in the Audit Trail Security (ttaud3137m000) session must be selected for the audit file.
    • You are authorized to print the audit file. Audit authorizations are specified in the Audit Authorizations (ttaad4562m000) and Audit Authorizations (ttaad4162s000) sessions. See the online help of the Audit Authorizations (ttaad4162s000) session.

To print audit files:

  1. Optionally, enter selection ranges for Audit category, Audit profile, and company group.
  2. Enter the ranges of tables and companies for which you want to print the transactions.
  3. Enter the ranges of sequence files and transactions you want to print. You can filter, among other things, on session and user.
  4. Click one or more check boxes in the Status to Print section, to select the types of transactions that must be printed.
  5. Click Print.
Note: This session prints all audited fields belonging to the tables in the selection range. Alternatively, you can use the Print Range of Audit Files (Multi Lines) (ttaad4463m000) session. In that session you can specify which table fields must be printed in the report.

Update for MLE fields

If audit trail is activated for a multi language-enabled (MLE) field, the field values are written to the auditing report in all available languages. The language is written on top of the field value and consists of two language codes. The first language code identifies the language of the field value. The second language code identifies the language from which the first language is derived.

Example: an item description is only specified in en_US and is displayed in the en_US, de_DE, and fr_FR languages:

  • The language for en_US is en_USen_US.
  • The language for de_DE is de_DEen_US.
  • The language for fr_FR is fr_FRen_US.

For more information about MLE, see the help of the Parameters Multi Language Support (ttadv4106m000) session or one of the other sessions in the Multi Data Language submenu.
