1. Open Bitcoin Core.

  2. Click the "Transactions" tab.

  3. Click the "Export" button.

  4. Inspect the saved .csv file and behold its columns:

    "Confirmed","Date","Type","Label","Address","Amount (BTC)","ID"

Basically, I didn't realize this until I had wasted countless hours of my life over months to go through numerous old wallets to collect the old transactions into a database table, only now seeing how valuable it is to know the transaction fees.

I also wasted a lot of time trying to use the Bitcoin Core API to get this information, but it turns out it only works for transactions belonging to the currently-loaded wallet(s), and even if you enable a special option, you still only get to know the "raw transaction details", and the transaction fees are ambiguous to say the least in that context.

    Did you perhaps mean to ask "How can I learn the transaction fee for arbitrary transactions?".
