Within this screen, simply enter in the ten character application name, and its corresponding description. Once this definition has been created, the application may be selected with an option 2 Configure datamap. The point of configuring a datamap from a spooled file is to select a spooled file that will contain a single financial transaction per page and map the location of each relevant data element from the first page from the beginning of its location to the maximum width of its ending location.

Initially, a listing of the current users spooled files will display. Alternatively, an F5=Out Queue may be select to view all the spooled files from a single out queue. Once a sample spooled file is identified, the selection is chosen from the list, and the fist of eleven data elements may be mapped.

Below is a list of these eleven reserved field names and their descriptions.

ACVEND Vendor Account
ACVNAM Vendor Name
ACINV Invoice Number
ACINDT Invoice Date
ACINV4 Invoice Sequence
ACAMT Invoice Amount
ACBNK# Vendor Bank Number
ACBNKA Vendor Bank ABA
ACACDT Vendor Withdrawal Date
ACBKTY Vendor Accout Type
ACKYNM ACH Control Key

The process begins by locating the first position of the fist element, Vendor Account, and placing the cursor in the beginning location of this field an pressing the F8=Mark data field start. Next the end of the element is located, and F8=Mark data field end is pressed. Completing the data field selection will render the next display which requires that the details of this mapped data to be configured.
