  1. Go to Travel Admin Work center.
  2. Go to Credit Cards View.

These Credit Card Files are Imported on Different dates and contain Transaction with same amount and Transaction Date is also similar.
Status of the Credit Card Files is Import Completed with Errors.


Credit Card Files are in status Import Completed with Errors and the duplicate check works only for Credit Card Files with status Import Succeeded.

  2. Go to Edit Credit Card Transactions.
  3. Filter the Transaction using Amount in Expense Currency.
