Effective dating
Effective Dating

  • Effective dating allows users to maintain a chronological record of historical, current and future data.

  • When entering effective dated information current information is not overwritten.

  • There are three categories of effective-dated records:

    • Future - All rows that have an effective date greater than the system date.

    • Current - The row with the effective date closest to, but not greater than the system date. It is this row of data that the system recognizes as the “current active” row.

    • History - All rows with an effective date less than the effective date on the current row.

  • When the date of a future row arrives, it becomes the current row. What was the current row then becomes history.
