SFI21 Element 18 FIM Number

SFI21 Element 18 is defined as an 11 A/N field.  In our inward billing data for source code 44/45/46 billings, we are receiving invalid FIM Numbers of 11 digits.
 
In our rejection of these billings (let's say for fare difference), if we return a 10 digit FIM Number, will this result in a SIS validation error?

Hi

 

I am still awaiting a response on this. I have another question.

 

We have received some FIM Rejections with dummy FIM number “4599999999”.  What validation is being performed on the FIM number by SIS?

Thanks

Hi Konda,

 

Sorry for the delay.

 

If you reject with 10 digits for the FIM number, the link will be lost and hence the invoice will fail in validation.

 

As for the dummy FIM number, SIS is not validating any FIM number/ticket number. It just validates that the data in this field is only numeric. The only exception is that 0000000000 or 0  is not a valid ticket number.

 

Hope that clarifies.

Regards,

Ashley
