Invoice Supporting Document Naming

Dear Team,
 
This is related to the naming of the Supporting Document sent to IATA. As per the guide it would have the following naming convention ASDF-BBBTDDDDDDDDSSSSS.ZIP.
A- Billing Category
BBB- Billing Entity numeric Code
T-Approach
DDDDDDDD - Date of creation
SSSSS - Sequence of creation
 
Is it necessary for the sequence to be continuous numbers per day or is it possible to have a gap between the numbers. (I.e. can we generate 6 supporting document files having sequence number as 00001,00002,00003,00101,00102 and 00103 on a single day ?)
 
Thanks,
Subhasish

Dear Subhasish,

 

Ideally the numbers should be sequential. However, there is no restriction or validation for this, so you can have gaps in the sequence if you wish, juts make sure you can keep track of them.

 

Regards,

Ashley
