Summary: Upcoming Automatic Message Class Update

Posted on January 30, 2002

TO: ALL TITLE IV WAN DESTINATION POINTS
FROM: U.S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
RE: Upcoming Automatic Message Class Update

On January 31, 2002 CPS/WAN will send out the message class "MESSAGTB" to all users. EDconnect 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 add the following message classes for the Common Origination and Disbursement (COD) project under the 2002-2003 cycle:

Message Class Description - Sender ID Record Length

The message table update will be transparent to you 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.

The new message table file also will be available on the SFADownload Web site (http://fsadownload.ed.gov/index.htm). The file may be found in the "Software" section listed under "Message Class Table."

USING MULTIPLE PC's:

If you have performed a network install of EDconnect, 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 been imported.

USING MULTIPLE STAND-ALONE PC's

The PC that downloads the "MESSAGTB" will have its message table 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 EDconnect software located on the other stand-alone PC's or you may retrieve the MESSAGTB file from the SFADownload web site. If you have questions on manually importing this file please contact CPS/WAN Technical Support at 1-800-330-5947 or via e-mail at CPSWAN@ncs.com.

It is important to remember if you ever re-install EDconnect, you must manually import the MESSAGTB file, or download this file the SFADownload Web site (http://fsadownload.ed.gov/index.htm). The file may be found in the "Software" section listed under "Message Class Table."

MAINFRAME USERS:

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 updated.

If you have any questions about the message table, contact CPS/WAN Technical Support at 1-800-330-5947 or via electronic mail at CPSWAN@ncs.com.
