Adding 8XX numbers

You can use the 8XX List to add up to 1000 toll-ree numbers; paste your list from Word, Excel, Notepad, or WordPad, or other word processing, spreadsheet, or text editor.

Do the following to ensure that your text is formatted correctly:

  • Each toll-free number must be 10 numeric digits in length.
  • Each toll-free number must not include parentheses, spaces or hyphens.
  • Each DNIS number must equal the value entered in the DNIS Length field. (If the DNIS number value is blank, the system will generate the DNIS value beginning with the last digit of the toll-free number.)
  • DNIS length must between 2-10 digits in length.
  • Each toll-free row must include a space between the toll-free number and DNIS.
  • Each toll-free row must terminate with a carriage return.

Validating 8XX Numbers

  1. Use the Validate button to ensure the data you entered into the 8XX Numbers section is valid.

    For example, the DNIS Length selected will be validated against the 8XX List, if DNIS is manually entered in 8XX List. In this example, 4 digit DNIS was selected, but six digit DNIS was entered after the 8XX Number.  The Results Message notes DNIS in 8XX List is wrong, that it should be 4 digits instead of 6. The DNIS field can be edited to correct to the 4 digits that was selected in DNIS Length. Select Validate again;you are able to proceed when you receive ‘Validation Complete, No Errors’ message.

Another example is validating the formatting of the 8XX Numbers. In this example, the 8xx was entered as (800) 203-2085, with the space causing the last seven digits to appear as DNIS. 8XX and DNIS fields can be corrected, then select Validate button again. You are able to proceed when you receive ‘Validation Complete, No Errors’ message.
