Some notes on fields that are not self-explanatory:
"intLinkID_SEEC" -- Each transaction reported by a campaign is coded and audited by the SEEC. As part of this process we will randomly assign a unique number to each contributor (or vendor) to each campaign. When that contributor or vendor is involved in multiple transactions with the campaign we will group those transactions with this unique number.
"intCandidateLinkID_SEEC" -- The intLinkID_SEEC identifying each campaign's candidate.
"strTransactionType_SEEC" -- If the transaction cannot be linked then it is categorized here. PLEASE NOTE, transactions coded here as "2-Orphan" have been recently reported and not yet coded or processed by the SEEC and may duplicate or amend other transactions in this list. Transactions listed as "3z-Uncoded" will never be coded.
"strPDCFormLineNumber" -- The C4 or C3 PDC Form Schedule and Line number where each transaction is reported. "A.3" is Schedule A Line 3 Expenditures, "C3.2" is itemized contributions, etc... See the PDC forms for further information. www.pdc.wa.gov.
