Ticket Sleuthing 101


Ticket Sleuthing is required when you’re looking to find out very specific information about a transaction. Below is a basic overview of how to get the information you might need. All instructions will start at your Main Menu in CounterPoint. You will need, at a minimum, two required conditions:

  1. The date (or range) that the transaction took place
  2. One more of the following: customer number, an item from the ticket, or the amount of the transaction.

Step 1: Find the Transaction

Most often, this will be a transaction that has already been posted.
  1. Point of Sale>Reports>History Folder>Ticket History
  2. On the Ticket History parameters tab check ONLY the following:
    • Print Line Items
    • Show Payment Detail
    • Print Paycode Recap
  3. On the Ticket History Tab –
    • Customize for Ticket Date – and enter your 1st Required Condition – Ticket Date (or Range)
    • Customize for Store – If your database has multiple stores – limit by your store
    • Preview the Report – this will give you multiple pages of tickets
  4. Use the Binoculars at the top of the Report and SEARCH for the 2nd required condition

Once you find the transaction, on the left hand side of the transaction will be the information you’ll need to continue: the Ticket Number! In our case below, the ticket number is: 1-100131

Step 2: All System Information related to that Transaction

Once you have your Ticket Number, then you can continue on to the Ticket History View – The view pulls ticket history directly from the database and gives you access to all of the information that was captured at the time of the transaction.

  1. Go to Sales History>Views>Ticket History
  2. Where it says DOCUMENT Enter in your Ticket Number from above
  3. Hit Tab to bring up the Ticket Information
  4. This will give you all access to the information from that ticket – including Date and Time


From Here, you can choose to reprint the receipt, or if it was a credit transaction, the signed sales draft. Or if you need it, you can print an image of the record you’re currently viewing.

Security codes are the basis for what a user can or cannot do within Counterpoint. They define which menu code is assigned to users and whether they can perform point of sale functions like processing returns. By default, we program three security code levels for you: Administrator, Manager, and Point of Sale. The administrator level allows the most access to the application, and the point of sale level allows a user the least access to the application.
Menu codes define the functions available in the Counterpoint menu. For example, if a user does not have the Items function on their menu, they cannot add an item to the database.
Each Counterpoint user has associated User Preferences to determine how Counterpoint functions for that user.
