In anticipation of fiscal year-end close and future holidays, the Comptroller’s office would like to remind agencies that:
- History files are retained and available for agencies to download for 12 business days for each statewide financial system. (For files older than 12 business days, contact the CPA Help Desk.)
- 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).
