Detailed Validation results

Ashley,

 

The following is taken from ISPG, pp' 4.3.3 :

==============================

SIS additionally flags certain transactions highlighted below which fail the validation process but does not mark these as errors.

3. Check digit error: All AWBs which have check digit error or a 9 input by the submitting carrier will also be marked by SIS

============================

 

Is it possible that we'll find AWBs having bad AWB numbers in outgoing from SIS IDEC files?

BY "bad AWB numbers" I mean:

(1)    Wrong check digit

(2)    9 figured AWBs

 

Thank you,

Michael

Hi Michael,
 
You will not receive a 9 digit awb. The AWB's will be 7 digit followed by the check digit.
 
A check digit is calculated by dividing the AWB number series by seven and declaring the remainder to be the check digit (Modulus Seven). So the valid options are '0-6'. Carriers are also permitted to enter '9' as a check digit.
 
In case the check digit is computed incorrectly by the airline or they have defaulted the check digit to '9' then SIS will highlight this in the column "IS Validation Flag".
 
Regards,
Kirk

Hi,

 1.      My question was not clear enough in the previous attempt.

 Let's look at the case when "A" sends an AWB, with badly computed check digit, to "B".

-        Will SIS inform "A" about this error?

-        Will SIS forward that erroneous billing to "B" or will that billing be held in SIS until the error is corrected?

 

In a nut shell, is it possible for us to receive an AWB with badly calculated check digit in IDEC from SIS?

 

2.      Thank you for the explanation of the "check digit" calculation.

 

Thank you,

Michael

Hi Michael,

 

I hope I have answered your question in the separate post on this same topic. Please let me know if you require further clarification.

 

Best,

Ashley
