History Tracking question - incorrect data?

Not sure where to ask this question, as I couldn't find a relative topic here or in the Answers forum.

I have a question about History Tracking. One of my records has history tracking on a certain field. This field is shown as being changed from 625 to 626. 2 days later, the next entry in the history tracking, the same field is shown as being changed from 625 to 624. How is this possible? This means either something was tracked without the value actually changing, or the value changed without being tracked.

Tracking was not changed in between or anything like that.

Thank you in advance for the help.

Hi Chris,
According to Salesforce Documentation
"If a trigger causes a change on an object the current user doesn’t have permission to edit, that change is not tracked because field history honors the permissions of the current user."

Refer: https://help.salesforce.com/apex/HTViewHelpDoc?id=tracking_field_history.htm&language=en

So perhaps something like this happened to the data you are quoting here.

Kindly mark as solved if this answer helps!
