Subject: SAIG Message Class File Update

On December 17, 2013, we sent an updated version of the EDconnect message class table file "MESSAGTB" via the Student Aid Internet Gateway (SAIG) to all user mailboxes. The EDconnect transmission software will automatically request, download, and import this new message class table with a user's 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

We have added two message classes for the Common Origination and Disbursement (COD) System.

COD Message Classes

The following COD message classes have been added back to the EDconnect message class table file. These message classes are not new; we inadvertently removed them with the December 13, 2013 update.

The message classes are as follows:

Message Class

Description

SCHMONOP COD School Monitoring Report
CODRBFOP COD Rebuild Loan File

Update, Import, and Installation Information

The message class table update will be transparent to users except for an Import dialog box, which will appear on a user's 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 in the "Software and Associated Documents" section.

Using Multiple Networked PCs

If a user has performed a network installation of EDconnect, the new message class table will import into the EDconnect database on the user's 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 using the current version of EDconnect, the message class table will automatically download and update EDconnect on each PC that initiates a transmission.
