English term or phrase: narrative
Hi! Any idea about "narrative" in French.
Dans le domaine bancaire. Plus précisément, le règlement des opérations de change via une sorte de banque de compensation.
Contexte: "A user with appropriate privileges can (but need not) specify a number of account entries and account entry narrative. The user must specify the identifier of the account to be posted and the DR/CR indicator."
Merci d'avance.

rapport des inscriptions au compte

From what I understand, and after undertaking some searches in Termium, narrative would appear to designate some sort of report indicating all the entries that were made in the account. It is a document, either written or computer generated. I would therefore go with «rapport», which can be used to describe both paper and computer documents. Further research in the LGDT seems to corroborate this translation.
