Teststatus

Hello there,
 
I've got a question on the xml tag InvoiceData@Name with the attribute "TestStatus". The ISPG is not well-defined regarding that tag.
 
If we got an "Y" within, the xml is just a test case.
If we got an "N" within, the xml is a not a test case, but a live case? I'm not sure about that.
And what about a blank content? May it happen? If so, is it a test case or a live case?
 
Hope to here from you soon.
 
Regards
Marco

Marco,
 
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. As for your question, the element "InvoiceData @Name" is an optional field available to the Billing Entity to provide additional information about the Invoice.
 
The name "TestStatus" is an attribute that has been defined in the dictionary which can be used by the Billing airline to convey some message bilaterally regarding the type of the Invoice that is being submitted. The valid values for this field needs to be defined bilaterally between the billing and the billed entity. So if "Y" and "N" are defined as the valid value, the same can be used in the IS-XML invoice.
 
Note: The contents of this field has no impact on the way IS will process this invoice. If the Invoice is to be settled via the clearing house, IS will disregard the data provided in the field InvoiceData @Name as it considers this field only as an information exchange field. IS will send the invoice for Settlement irrespective "TestStatus" being marked as "Y".

Hope this helps.
