Transaction Event Codes


A transaction event code is a five-digit code that classifies the transaction type based on money movement and debit or credit. A transaction event code, or T-code, is a five-character alphanumeric string, such as T0001.

A T-code has the following format:



  • <event-group> is a two-digit general accounting event group. The event group portion of the T-code is sufficient for reconciliation and report parsing.
  • <event-type-code> is a two-digit event type code.
