Switched batch required fields

A Switched Batch file supports add, change and disconnect actions of Switched 8XX, ANIs and calling cards. Each row on a batch file is processed separately, therefore a Switched Batch file can support multiple combinations of actions and services. An example would be a file that has rows to Add Switched 8XX, as well as rows that disconnect ANIs.

 

Each action and service combination has specific required fields, which are provided below.

Note:

  • The length noted for each field is the maximum limit.  Exceeding the maximum limit in any field should trigger validation error in Switched Batch Formatter.  If Switched Batch Formatter is not used (by editing previously validated file), rows with any fields exceeding maximum limit will fail to process successfully.

    • Customer Account ID accepts up to 12 numeric characters, but Wholesale National account numbers are 8 digits in length.  You only need to enter the 8 digits in the Customer Account ID field; adding leading zeros to fill that field to the maximum limit of 12 is not necessary.

    • Primary Name (for End User's Name) only accepts up to 25 characters.  If more than 25 are entered, that row/record on the batch file will fail validation and/or fail to process successfully, as noted above.
       
  • The alpha/numeric characters (maximum 15) entered in the Order ID field can be used to run the Order ID Service Report.

  • See related articles regarding ANI PAC/VPAC, and 8XX AOS/COS.
