If you have used the expire transaction by Award Year in error, you can unexpire those transactions by creating an unexpire transaction file. You may also follow the instructions below if you imported a file to expire transactions and need to unexpire transactions.

First the admin user should go to Admin>Expire Transactions. In the Expire Transaction screen select the link in the successful column for the transactions expired in error.



In the More Information About Expire Transactions screen select the export button.



This downloads a .csv file to your computer. Depending on your default browser, you may need to save the file before opening the file.
