It's not exactly the answer to your question, but the way I always explain these is:
The Historical Aged Trial Balance can do everything the others can and more. To make it simpler for users, I recommend always using the Historical Aged Trial Balance and pretending like the others don't exist. :-)

The main difference between the Historical Aged Trial Balance (HATB) and the others is that the HATB will look at transactions in both open and historical tables and allow you to get the information as of a particular date. The others will only look at open tables and, thus, only a subset of your data.

What is the difference in open and historical tables?  I know this seems like a silly question but I really don't know what the difference is...

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

You know how when you look at the Receivables Transaction Inquiry - Customer window, there is an Origin column at the far left? It will say WORK, OPEN or HIST? Those are stored in 3 different sets of tables. The HATB looks at all 3 sets of tables. The other aging reports only look at WORK and OPEN. Although typically WORK tables are not included in aging reports, since the transactions are not posted yet.
