  • Patent number: 6854646
    Abstract: A transaction processing method is provided for a transaction management system which processes transactions using settlement cards. In the transaction processing method, a transaction process is executed based on individual control information that is input at each transaction and transaction information for the transaction. A judgment is made based on the transaction information whether or not the transaction satisfies at least one count-up condition indicating a predetermined range of transaction types. When the transaction meets the count-up condition, numerical information indicative of the number of transactions satisfying the count-up conditions is added. A determination is made whether or not a numerical value represented by the numerical information after the addition is within a range specified by extraction conditions.

  • Publication number: 20040193657
    Abstract: In a financial report distribution system of the present invention, an event and schedule information database that stores event and schedule data indicating independently occurring changes in a market environment is provided in an analysis center. Independently occurring events in a stock market, such as stock transfer, merger, and acquisition are defined for each user. The financial report distribution system is equipped with an event-ready function: whenever such events have occurred, a merging DB in the system is updated, and a sequence of processes for the user from information processing through distribution of the processed information is automatically activated.

  • Publication number: 20030163426
    Abstract: A fee management system for managing ATM fees at an ATM that is installed at a business establishment and is connected to a server via a network. The fee management system includes a section that designates a purchase of a merchandise card at the ATM and informs the server of the purchase via the network, and a section that calculates an amount to be discounted from an ATM transaction fee when applicable. The fee management system also includes a section that, when a transaction fee is charged for a transaction at the ATM, subtracts at least a part of the amount of the transaction fee to be discounted from an account of a business establishment where the merchandise card can be used.

  • Publication number: 20030093369
    Abstract: A transaction intermediate service providing technique for intermediating a transaction between transaction requesting parties through a financial institution based on credit information. An intermediate server receives condition information including the credit information and desired level information from a transaction requesting party for registration in a database. The server matches article attributes and essential condition information between transaction requesting parties based on the received information with reference to the database. Then, the server determines the transaction establishment possibility by comparing a priority or a weighting factor assigned to the priority in the desired level information between the transaction requesting parties to find a matching degree, and determining based on the matching degree the possibility that a transaction is established between both parties.

  • Patent number: 5664129
    Abstract: A program described by using a graphic representation is edited and a text language type programming language is generated from the edited graphic representation. A data table for managing data to be used in programming, a process management table for managing processes applicable to the data and a program table for storing step information of the program are prepared. By using those data, the data and the processes applicable to the data are displayed and a user selects from those displays to graphically represent the program and store the step information of the program in the program table. The delivery of the data during the process is represented by the designation of the data sharing by ports accompanied with the graphic representation. Finally, the target program is generated from the program table.

  • Patent number: 5566336
    Abstract: A program generating method in which a program for performing again a series of user operations for an application program is generated as one which can be executed taking synchronization with a response message issued from a system program to the application program. A user operation for a window being used by an application is stored together with that window generation information issued for a request (for example, a request for window generation) from an application program which is issued from a window server to the requester application or a window manager. From the stored user operation is generated a command which transmits that operation to the application program. From the information from window server is generated a command which waits for that information.

  • Patent number: 5533141
    Abstract: A portable pen pointing device and a processing system with pen pointing device which can be easily used. The portable pen pointing device includes a memory for storing user's specific penmanship/handwriting information and a pen interface unit for supplying the user's specific penmanship/handwriting information to a processor body of the processing system. The processor body interprets a writing sample on the basis of the user's specific penmanship/handwriting information supplied from the portable pen pointing device through the pen interface unit thereof. With this construction, there is no need to read information from a storage medium such as a flexible disk in which a user's specific dictionary for penmanship/handwriting interpretation is written. Also, an operation of establishing a certain writing environment becomes unnecessary or easy.
