New Fields in Error File
In January 2003, NSLDS will add several data elements to the Error file. These new data elements are based on customer feedback, and will help guaranty agencies resolve errors. The new fields and their positions are:
- �Supplemental Error Data (200-319)
- Date of Loan Status (320-327)
- Code for Servicer (328-333)
- Code for Current Holder Lender (334-339)
- Conflict Value (340-374)
The new data elements will all be placed in the Filler section of the current layout.
All the fields are copied from the input record with the exception of the Conflict Value and Supplemental Error Data. These fields are populated with the value in the NSLDS database or the submittal file that caused the error.
Please replace Table D-1, the Error Record table, in Appendix D of your Guaranty Agency Data Provider Instructions with the new table attached to this Technical Update.
We hope that this data will assist you in your efforts to resolve errors.
If you have any questions, please contact the NSLDS Customer Service Center at
(800) 999-8219 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
