HTM menu in DOP Finacle

  • HTM stands for Hypertext Transaction Maintainence. 
  • HTM menu is generally used to withdraw the amount from Sundry account. 

What is a Sundry account?

  1. Sundry account is an office account which is an unposted office account 
  2. Unposted office accounts are parking credit accounts.This is an OAP type of account. 
  3. OAP means Office Account Pointing in which we use reference number to reverse the transaction hence it is named as Pointing Account. 
  4. In DOP Finacle for every TDA accounts i.e., for MIS\TD\SCSS accounts there are sundry accounts 0337,0335 and 0338 respectively for all the customer MIS\TD\SCSS accounts system will generate the interest and it will credit the total interest into sundry office accounts mentioned. 
  5. When we perform the transaction using HTM hence the system will ask the reference number as it is OAP account to reverse the amount. 

HTM menu in detail

In DOP Finacle we generally use for withdrawing the interest amount for MIS\TD and SCSS accounts. 
The menu screen will be shown as follows in the below figure 

In this menu there are 2 columns namely Function code and Transaction type\Subtype

Function code 

In this column we have different functions such as add\modify\delet\inquiry and verify as mentioned in the below screen

Depending on the usage select the function code

ADD-- When we are trying to withdraw the amount or cash transfer we use ADD function
MODIFY--- when we need modification

VERFIY---to verify the transaction

Transaction Type\Subtype

Depending on the usage transaction type\subtype can be C/NP--Cash/Normal payment,T/CI--Customer Induced and C/CT Cash/Cash Transfer as shown in the below figure 

Cash Normal Payment----When the amount is less than 20000/- then we should use the trasaction sub type as Cash Normal Payment.

Customer Induced--- When the amount is 20000/- or above we use customer induced in this we have both Debit and Credit legs.

Cash/Cash Transfer--- when we need tranfer the cash i.e, from vault or to Vault or between tellers we use this transaction type.

When we select the function code and transaction type then the system will display the following screen as shown in the below screen

  1. Select the transaction as Debit\Credit 
  2. Enter the Account id. 
  3. Enter the amount 
  4. Enter the Reference number 
Select the Restore value as shown in the below figure 

In Restore values there are so many options but in general we use the following
A-Additional Part Tran Details --- which is used in general for performing the MIS\TD or SCSS accounts.

G-Partioning Details--- For reversing the excess amount found in the counter the system will ask the partioning details there we have to enter account id of the teller.

For ex--- When customer noted wrong number then if the original customer asks about the amount then we will withdraw the amount in HTM using G-Partioning Details 

O-Other/Part Transaction Detail--- Which is used to inquire the transaction i.e., by whom the transaction created and by whom the transaction verified.

After entering the above details when we click on Go then the system will show the below screen

Generally remove the start amount and end amount, enter the reference number and in filter option select the option as "Select" then the system will show all the transaction which are reversed and which are not reversed. 

Then click on Go then the system wil display the screen as shown below

Then in the above screen one can observe if the tran amount and reversed amount are same then the payment has been done.

In order to view the reversed amount details then click on the icon which is present in the field Contra Tran Details then the system will display the details by whom reversed and verified as shown

Click on "x" mark as shown in the above then the system will display the contra details as shown.

Windows Server 2003 Speed Issues and Solution



OS : Windows 2003 Server SP2; SQL Version : SQL 2000


In Windows Server 2003, Network Speed is suddenly dropped into half of the network speed, 2-3 times per day. It gets so slow that none of the clients could work with the Server related program installed on them.

We tried so many different things such as replacing the hubs,switches and even some wires. Every time one of these changes solves the problem and the network goes back to its normal state.


  1. Server getting slow down due to unrestricted size of SQL database log file.
  2. In Windows Server 2003 by default SQL Server was configured as AutoGrow for database Log file.
  3. In this case our log file went to be some in GB size and that was the reason the network speed dropped every 6 or 7 ours.
  4. Because every time the clients request a query and changes were made in the DB, the log information may written in Log file and put zero for the rest of the log file size. This may causes the problem.
  5. To solve this we restricted the size to 10 MB for the log file and Problem Solved.

Support for Windows Server 2003 will end on July 14, 2015

Microsoft will end support for Windows Server 2003 on July 14, 2015. This change will affect your software updates and security options. 

Windows Server 2003 support is ending July 14, 2015

What does end of support mean for you? After July 14, Microsoft will no longer issue security updates for any version of Windows Server 2003. If you are still running Windows Server 2003 in your data center, you need to take steps now to plan and execute a migration strategy to protect your infrastructure. By migrating to Windows Server 2012 R2, Microsoft Azure or Office 365, you can achieve concrete benefits, including improved performance, reduced maintenance requirements, and increased agility and speed of response to the business.

Count Down Started to End Support

Accounts Software to be printed in Laser Printer via USB


Accounts Report to be printed in USB Laser Printer

Solution as  to  how  to  make  Accounts  software  print  in  USB  hp laserjet  1020 printer.

Prepared by

Girija SA Tirupur HPO Mobile;9486596214


  • DOS based applications like FoxPro doesn't detect an USB printer.

One way of directing output to USB is by using net use at command line,We will use a little trick to work out.
  1. We fist share our printer with a share name within 8 digit name.
  2. Because DOS didn't support more than 8 characters.
  3. Then we will use above command.
  4. But we need to ensure that we will use text print only.

Now follow these instructions

  1. Share your USB printer and give its name at printer share name
  2. Open the printer properties, select ADVANCE tab select Print Processor
  3. Select TEXT and save the change.

Now use net use command
NET USE LPT1 \\computer name\printer share name/persistent:yes
At the command prompt type DIR >PRN this must give you print from USB printer,then try printing from your application.

That's all,  now you can write a small batch file to active the printer every time before you go to FoxPro or any other DOS program. 

Note : After Create Batch file using above command line, Just create shortcut the same in Start to activate printer automatically.
