Summary: Upcoming SAIG Message Class File Update

Posted on 05-16-2007

On May 18, 2006, Federal Student Aid will send the message class "MESSAGTB" via the Student Aid Internet Gateway (SAIG) to all user mailboxes. EDconnect will automatically request, download, and import this new message class table with your next connection to the SAIG network. Once the MESSAGTB file has been imported, the new message class table will be used from that point forward.

Message Classes

The new message class table will add 29 new message classes for the Debt Collection Service (DCS) processes that will be used by Guaranty Agencies (GAs) to exchange data with Borrower Services. These message classes are as follows:

Update, Import, and Installation Information

The message class 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.

The new message class table file is also available on the Federal Student Aid Download (FSAdownload) Web site, located at http://fsadownload.ed.gov, in the "Software and Associated Documents" section.

Using Multiple Networked PCs

If you have performed a network installation of EDconnect, the new message class table will import into the EDconnect database on your network drive. Individual workstations will all have access to the new message class table after it has been imported.

Using Multiple Stand-Alone PCs

If you are using the current version of EDconnect (version 7.1), the message class table will automatically download and update EDconnect on each PC that initiates a transmission.
