Record Format Description

(Returned output fields follow the input fields)

We can work with any of your existing legacy formats.  For example, if you are currently sending a file to a credit reporting service, we can use that same file as input to our process.  Or, if you are using a competitive EDA service, you can more seamlessly and transparently integrate the use of our service by accepting as input the current record layout and providing back to you results formatted as you currently expect them back from your current service.

If you have the technical abilities in-house, however, data can most efficiently be processed by RealEDA if it can be formatted into either of the following formats.  Each record must be terminated by a CR/LF and can be either in the fixed field length indicated or using the field separator "|" commonly referred to as a "pipe" or "vertical bar" symbol.  DO NOT use any quotes or double quotes to identify "character" fields if possible.

Here's an example of a "pipe" delimited format record. 

Beginning Position and Length information are also provided if you would rather create the record in a fixed field length format instead of the pipe-delimited format.

We can also provide custom output files upon request.
