2006 ARC Transaction History File Available Until May 1

ARC's Transaction History File with data for the full year of 2006 is available on CD until May 1. After this date, ARC will begin to purge all transaction information older than 39 months.

This file provides you with your settled and voided transaction information for all PEDs in 2006. It comes equipped with FREE viewer software that allows you to easily search for a specific transaction, view it on screen, and print it onto a single page. Plus, the software is self-contained - there's nothing to install.

You can import the Transaction History text file into several popular software programs, such as Microsoft Excel and Access, in order to create reports, manage, sort, and analyze the data as you please. For further information, please call +1 703.816.8530 or Click here to learn more.
