History Files

In anticipation of fiscal year-end close and future holidays, the Comptroller’s office would like to remind agencies that:

  • 12 business days of History files are retained for each statewide financial system.
  • Agencies have two weeks to download a missed file with no need to notify the Comptroller’s office.
  • The History files reside on the same IP address as the agencies’ daily files.
  • Even if an agency receives files via FTP, agencies can still access the History files.
  • During fiscal year-end close, one HX file (HX.HIST) will be generated that will include the transactions from the regular cycle and the transactions from the fiscal year-end sweep cycle(s).
