This chapter contains the topic:
From Accounts Receivable (G03), choose Credit/Collection Management
From Credit & Collection Management (G0315), choose Create Credit Reporting Tapes
From Credit Reporting Tapes (G03151), choose TRW, Dun & Bradstreet or CREDITEL
When you create a credit reporting tape, the system:
Reads information from the A/R Cash Management worktable (F0315)
Formats your customer's A/R information to conform to the standards of the specific credit agency
Writes the information to the tape
You might be required to send these tapes to one or more of the following credit agencies:
Dun & Bradstreet
These credit agencies, in turn, process the tape and establish credit rating information about your customers.
The following information describes the credit agency's requirements for credit reporting tapes.
|TRW||This credit agency requires that you:
|Dun & Bradstreet||This credit accepts tapes that conform to the requirements of TRW.|
|CREDITEL||This credit agency has no special requirements.|
Run the Update A/R from Address Book program (P03820).
Contact your credit reporting agency to obtain any necessary information.
Ensure that you have a tape drive available to create magnetic tapes.
Run the Credit Analysis Refresh program (P03525) to create the A/R Cash Management worktable. Alternatively, you can set a processing option in the Create Credit Reporting Tapes program to base your credit reporting information on a temporary cash management table. This lets you submit the tape program without running Credit Analysis Refresh.
Initialize your media tape to either 1600 or 6250 BPI with standard IBM tape labels.
Choose the menu selection for one of the following:
TRW - P039201
Dun & Bradstreet - P039201
CREDITEL - P0309201C
Respond to the prompts that the system displays.
Set the appropriate processing options.
|Submitting more than one version at the same time||If you try to submit more than one version of the Create Credit Reporting Tapes program, the system displays an error message because each version accesses the Credit Tape worktable (F03902 or F03902C).|
|Creating credit tapes for multiple companies||To create a credit tape for multiple companies, set up separate versions of the Create Credit Reporting Tapes program.|
