  2. In the Usage field, enter text for later reference that describes any special considerations, usage, or other facts about this instance.
  3. Click View Full History to open a new window that displays the previous history of this instance since it was created in or moved to the current system.
  4. To add a memo, enter text in the Add Memo field and then click  Add Memo  to add the text to the memo area in the top part of the form. This text becomes part of the history.
  5. Select the check boxes for any two versions of this rule to compare them by using the Rule Compareutility. When you have selected two versions, click  Compare  to view the comparison.
  6. The Edit iconPencil, if present, indicates that an earlier version of this data instance is available.
