Truncate Old Invoice Number to IS Format

How is a migrated carrier recommended to truncate invoice numbers from an non-migrated billing carrier?

This discussion should be in the Technical Aspects of Migration forum.

In the case that the non-migrated carrier sends more than 10 characters, you should truncate the first 10 characters. See the following table for examples:

Old IDEC Mandatory 6N Old IDEC Optional 8AN Your IS response
123456 123456
123456 ABCDEF 123456ABCD

Please note that IS will not be validating that your truncated invoice number matches up with the old IDEC invoice numbers.
