Summary: Upcoming Automatic Message Class Update
Posted on 02-27-2006
On March 06, 2006 SAIG 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 SAIG network. Once the MESSAGTB file has been imported, the new message table will be used from that point on.
The new message class file will add the following to the message class table, including COD 2006-2007 and Direct Loan Servicing 2006-2007 message classes.

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. 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, unless you are using EDconnect v5.3 or above, which will automatically do another update with the next transmission.
The new message table file is also available on the FSAdownload Web Site (www.FSADownload.ed.gov). The file may be found in the "Software" section listed under "Message Class Table."
USING MULTIPLE NETWORKED 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:
If you are using EDconnect version 5.3 or above then the message table will automatically update each PC that initiates a transmission.
If you are using a lower version of EDconnect, 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, denoted by the highest numbered extension, 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 FSAdownload Web site.
MAINFRAME USERS OF EACLIENT/TDCLIENT:
If you receive files by requesting a specific message class or TGxxxxx number, then you will need to make changes in accordance with the MESSAGTB file.
You will need to receive the MESSAGTB file from your mailbox at a 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/SAIG Technical Support at 1-800-330-5947 or via electronic mail at CPSSAIG@ed.gov.
