- Click Run Report to display the report on the screen.
Click Download as CSV to save the report to a comma-delimited file that you can open in a spreadsheet or similar program.
Tips and examples
The following are tips for entering data in the fields so that the results appear as expected.
- Leave a field blank if you do not want it to be included in the search. For example, leave End Date blank to return results spanning
from the Start Date to the current date and time as of the time you run the report.
- The Attendee Email address and Transaction ID must be an exact match to your search string. Partial text
strings will not return transactions from addresses or IDs that contain the text string within them.
- Start and End Date formats are mm/dd/yyyy and mm/dd of the current year. When in doubt, use the calendar date selectors.

Transaction log fields
The following table describes the data available in the transaction log.
|Column name||Type of information|
Trans. Date/Time||The date and time that the transaction completed successfully or failed.|
|Issued By||Indicates whether the transaction was initiated by the attendee or a calendar editor. If the latter, the field shows
the Trumba sign-in name and email address.|

Void transaction happens only with an Authorize.Net payment gateway. It can occur when an attendee’s refund request is processed on the
same day that the payment was processed (in other words, before the transaction has been settled).|
|Provider||The name of the payment gateway: PayPal or Authorize.Net.|
|Result||Success, Failure, SuccessWarning. SuccessWarning means the transaction
succeeded with some warning, specified in the Error Message column.|
|TransactionID||A unique id that is associated with that transaction.|
|Amount||Payment or refund amount for that transaction.|
|Event Description||The same field as in the event editing form.|
|Event Date/Time||The date/time when the event occurs.|
|Attendee Name||The name the attendee used to register for the event.|
|Attendee Email||The email address the attendee used when registering.|
|Error Message||Any error message returned by the payment gateway provider for a failed transaction or a successful transaction with a
warning message. A transaction could fail, for example, if the visitor’s card is declined, or the visitor enters an invalid card number.
If the transaction is successful, this field is empty.
