Carrier Code with Alphabet

As per IS-XML Invoice Standard V3, Organaization ID, there is description :
 
「* The Alpha character will be translated to a numeric code as follows A = 11, B=12, C=13, D=14,E=15...... Y=35,Z=36 
So for example: If the Billing Entity has a IATA Prefix Code A56 then it will be translated and reported as 1156」
 
So, do we receive record that is translated to 4numeric code billing from carrier which use Alphabet on carrier code?

Hi
Airlines all have 3 numeric accounting codes. Alphanumeric accounting codes are only used by non-airlines
 
This would not normally happen unless it was being converted by SIS from IS-XML (which can handle alphanumeric accounting codes) to IS-IDEC (which can only handle numeric accounting codes). If both parties are using IS-XML, the alphanumeric accounting code can be retained.

Thank you very much for your answer.
We will use IS-XML.
So, if billing entity use IS-XML, we can receive data by alphanumeric code.
What about if billing entity use IS-IDEC?
Do we receive data by retaining alphanumeric code or converted 4numeric code?

Hi Hayato,

 

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. So to clarify, this requirement of translating an alphanumeric Member Prefix code to a numeric value is present only for IS-IDEC files.

 

Hence if the input was provided in IS-IDEC format, the billing carrier will translate the Prefix code to a numeric value. At the time of generating the output, if the billed entity wants the output in IS-XML format, IS will convert the numeric value to the alpha numeric code and populate it in the IS-XML output file.

 

Similarly if the billing entity uses IS-XML the alphanumeric Member Prefix code will be provided as is in the input file. At the time of generating the output, if the billed entity wants the output in IS-IDEC, IS will convert the alphanumeric code to a numeric value and populate it in the IS-IDEC file.

 

Hope this helps.
