This issue has been reported trough Spira, but we were advised to open an issue on SIS forum.
We can't validate a sampling FORM D/F file as we use a different way of calculation - we are obviously using a different month for FDR than expected by SIS. The result is that a file can't be validated. Here is the story:
SFI 53 – Element No 53 - Total Amount from Form B(s)
will be validated against the sum of
SFI 54 – Element No 15 - Provisional Invoice Amount in Billing Currency(1)
SFI 54 – Element No 25 - Provisional Invoice Amount in Billing Currency(2)
SFI 54 – Element No 35 - Provisional Invoice Amount in Billing Currency(3)
SFI 54 – Element No 45 - Provisional Invoice Amount in Billing Currency(4)
Currency of Evaluation for all coupons is USD.
Currency of Billing is EUR.
In SFI 54 our system converts from listing to billing currency by using the FDR of Form A/B transaction month.
However in SFI 53 the Element No 53 is calculated by using the FDR of Form D/E transaction month.
Result: the validation will never be passed.
We think that our way of calculating and using Form A/B transaction month FDR instead of using Form D/E transaction month FDR is correct and that this amounts can’t be compared. We also think that our way of calculation is in accordance with IATA RAM rule A12 1.4.3. Note 3.
We need to get a clear answer about this issue as this will have to result either to accept our way of calculation or to make some major changes in our Sampling module.
