In many (if not most billing) applications there are always a running report that shows the current balance before or after a credit or debit transaction. It is extremely important to be able to see every debit or credit transaction on a client’s account as it occurs. Sometimes this is done just by simply putting a “previous_bal” field in every table containing money transaction logs. As long as the record is logged before the clients balance is updated in cc_card table a simple DB trigger can do this. Even if the balance in the CC_CARD table is updated first it still shows what the balance is at the exact time of the credit or debit.

I have not used the A2billing invoicing as of yet and always did my own reports and interfaces to view or edit the data in A2b. This was because so many features I needed weren’t in older versions of a2billing.
I was so used to of doing this I recently overlooked some new features in a2billing.
So maybe there is a running Balance or something just as good and I posted to forum too soon.

To demonstrate this I put a new field inside of the cc_call table named “previous_bal” and wrote a trigger inside of MYSQ for table “cc_call” to update this field with the cleints current balance with each new call record. This is a crude way of doing it but least now there are some balance records with timestamps that shows what a clients balance is at any giving day as long as they are making calls every day. It’s really easy and fast to find errors or explain to clients they are being billed correctly when there is a before or after balance record for each debit or credit which occurs.
This can be done for other tables as well so it’s easy to see or explain billing issues to clients.

SET New.previous_bal = strprev_bal;
END;

Ok I totally retract my statement about the auto refill feature… and apologize for ranting in error

THERE are records i found in the cc_logrefill TABLE !!!! WHICH I OVER- LOOKED. AND THANK GOODNESS IT EXISTS. Still not sure though how I could have possibly overlooked it and still not sure why all the accounts checked for refilled wasn’t refilled but I am sure when I read the logs I will find the reason.
My Christmas saved!!
To say the least I was very perplex as to why there were an auto refill feature with no logs but now I see there is.. The auto refill feature is very useful.
