    Transaction Dating Back To

    Help me with this:

    "Smith was let go from the city January 28, but the investigation into what allegedly took place was conducted over the course of months as forensic auditors reviewed every transaction dating back to 2007."

    The part "every transaction dating back to 2007" means "every transaction made in 2007". So, the whole sentence means the auditors did not review transactions made AFTER 2007?

    No. "Every transaction dating back to 2007" includes every transaction from that point forward.

    The text means that the investigation started at a certain date, not noted but I assume recently. Every transaction from the starting date to a date in 2007 was examined. This is similar to "Every major storm dating back to 1834 was listed on the report." This means that any major storm from the present to 1834 was listed.
