Search SWIFT messages by Source and Creation

Use the Source & Creation tab to specify the source file and creation date criteria of the messages which you want to search for.
You can search for messages using a range of dates between which the message or messages were created. You can also search for duplicate messages, if any, in the database (excluding system messages).
You must first specify the source of the messages which you want to search. SWIFT recommends that you backup up and archive messages regularly. When you search for a message, it may exist in an archive, in which case you must select Archives as the source (otherwise select Live Days).
Archives are named based on the creation date of the messages they contain. The date format depends on the setting of the configuration parameter Display Format - Date You use the System Management application to set the value of this parameter. For more information, see configuring system parameters in the System Management Guide.

To specify the source and creation criteria:

  1. Click the Source & Creation tab.
  2. In the Search in, field, select where you want to perform the search:
    • Live Days, to search for messages in the database.
    • Archives, to search for messages in the message archives.
    • Templates, to search the message templates that are stored.
  3. If Archives was selected as the source, then select the archives to search, by clicking the transfer arrows to move the archives from the Available pane to the Selected pane.
  4. To search for messages that were created within a range of dates, complete the fields in the Creation section, as follows:
    Field
    Description
    from Date
    The date of the earliest message to search for.
    The Search function searches for messages that were logged in the database with a creation date on or after the date in this field.
    Time
    The earliest time at which a message was created
    The Search function searches for messages that match the from Date criterion and that were logged in the database after the time specified in this field.
    to Date
    The date of the latest message to search for.
    The Search function searches for messages that were logged in the database with a creation date on or before the date in this field.
    If you are searching the archives, then you can enter a maximum date range of 31 days.
    Time
    The latest time at which a message was created.
    The Search function searches for messages that match the to Date criterion and that were logged in the database before the time specified in this field(2) .
    (1) If you enter no value in this field, then the Search function uses today's date.
    (2) If no value is typed, then the system substitutes a time of "00:00:00" or "12:00:00 am", depending on the setting of the Display Format - Time configuration parameter.
    Note
    You can enter a Date Abbreviation instead of an actual date or a Time Abbreviation instead of an actual time.
  5. To search for duplicate messages, check the option Find Possible Duplicates.
    For more information, see Detecting Duplicate Messages.
