Dedicated 8XX batch file format

To download the template Excel file:

  1. Click Orders, click Manage Orders, then click Batch.
Batch Order
Batch Order (showing Dedicated selected)

Header and Trailer Records

  • The file must be tab-delimited
  • A tab must come before and after fields in the header and trailer
  • The Header Record must be the first line of the file and be followed by a carriage return
  • The Trailer Record must be the last line of the file
     

The following are guidelines for Header and Trailer records:


  • The file must be tab-delimited
  • A tab must come before and after fields in the header and trailer
  • The Header Record must be the first line of the file and be followed by a carriage return
  • The Trailer Record must be the last line of the file

 

See the Dedicated 8XX Batch File Format Data Dictionary, below, for more details.

Data Records

  • A tab must follow each data field between the first and last field of each record. If a field is null, a tab should be inserted before and after the null value, e.g. if there are three fields and the second field is a null value, the format would be: Field 1{tab}{tab}Field3 where Field1 and Field3 represent the field contents
  • 84 tabs should exist for each Data Record (85 data fields)
  • When viewing the file, field spacing may be different for each record due to the tab-delimited format (e.g. the Comment_Remarks field may only be 20 characters for one record and 75 for another)
  • Do not enter a tab after the last field; use a carriage return instead

Dedicated 8XX Batch File Naming Conventions

To successfully upload a Dedicated 8XX batch file, it must be named based on the following criteria:

 

  • Use a unique file name
  • Use .txt as the file extension (tab delimited format)
  • The file name must contain at least 13 characters
  • Month, day and year are in MMDDYYYY format (ex.: 01012004)
  • The three-digit customer code (ex.: CTL). (The customer code is validated during the submission process and must be populated correctly)
  • The letter T identifies the file as tab-delimited
  • Sequential letters of the alphabet identify more than one file sent in one calendar day, e.g. A for the first file and B, C, D, etc. for subsequent files sent the same day
  • Example: 11082003CTLTA.txt

 

File names with the same root name but different extensions are not recognized as different files. Submitting files with the same name will result in the file being rejected by Control Center. For example: 11082003CTLTA.txt, 11082003CTLTA.tx1, and 1108CTLTA.tx3 would all be viewed as the same file (11082003CTLTA) and be rejected by the system.
