Holding Balance (HBAL) (Update)

Removed the info box regarding rejection based on the As At Date = (blank).

For the demand HBAL report, the As At Date can be one of the following:

  • Null i.e. holding balance is generated immediately;

  • Date less than current business date i.e. historical balance generated immediately; or

  • Date = current business date i.e. as part of end of day, the closing balance is generated.
