RE: Upcoming Automatic Message Class Update

DATE: January 29, 1999,

On February 2, Title IV WAN will send out the message class "MESSAGTB" to all
users. Both EDconnect for Windows version 2.3.0 and IAM version 1.6.0 will
automatically request, download, and import this new message table with your
next connection to the network. After the MESSAGTB file has been imported,
the new message table will be used from that point onward.

The new message table will include the following change:

DIOD00OP ACK.-DISBURSEMENT ORIGINATION sender ID corrected from TG50002 to

You probably will not notice the above actions, except for an Import Dialog
Box, which will appear on your screen and display the progress of the import
as the file is importing. It is very important that you do not click on the
CANCEL button during the import procedure. If you cancel the automatic update,
you will need to import the file manually.


If you had performed a network install of EDconnect 2.2.0, with numerous
workstations, the new message table will copy to the edconn.mdb file that
is on your network drive. The individual workstations all will have access
to the new message table after it has imported.


Only the PC that downloads the "MESSAGTB" will have its message class
Database updated. Other stand-alone PC's will need to have the MESSAGTB file
manually imported. You can copy the received MESSAGTB.*** file onto a
diskette and manually import the file into the EDconnect for Windows or DOS
IAM software located on the other stand-alone PC's. If you have questions on
manually importing this file please call Tile IV WAN customer service at

It is also important to remember that if you ever re-install either
EDconnect for windows 2.3.0 or IAM 1.6.0, you must manually import the
MESSAGTB file, or make a request to Title IV WAN customer service to restore
the most recent MESSAGTB to your mailbox. The same would be true if you are
planning on converting from IAM for DOS to EDconnect for Windows.


You will need to receive the MESSAGTB file from your mailbox. Your receive
statement should specify FLT=73 because it is a compressed file. Decompress
this file at a logical record length of 80. This file will list one record
for each current and deleted message class. Compare this file with the
previous message table to determine which message classes have been added or

If you have any questions about the message table, call Title IV WAN
