Command Code AMSOC

a) Batching is done in groups of one to 100 documents for short closings. Line 1 of the input screen is to be used to input data which refers to the entire block.
b) Computer Action for Batch Input the computer will perform validity checks between items for input for line 1 and lines 2–23. Each line beginning with line 2 is to be considered an individual entry, a maximum entry input per page will be 22 documents, to include line 2 thru 23. Line 24 is reserved for operational messages.
c) In the following display the five closings may be entered on one page
This image is too large to be displayed in the current screen. Please click the link to view the image.
a. For NMF cases the "L" in position 7, line 1 indicates that the last closing in the block is on this page (in this case line 6)
  1. Where the tax period or disposal code is blank, it is assumed to be the same as the previous line. For instance, in the input display, lines 4 and 5 are tax period 197412 and line 4 would be assumed to have a disposal code 21.
  2. When an entire block (more than 22 closings) cannot be entered on one page the "Batch Position Indicator" "L" will not be entered in line 1 of that page and the terminal operator will input the entry code and proceed to the next page by depressing the "Enter" key and omitting the MFT and blocking series from line 1 of the next page. When the last entry for the batch has been entered on the screen, the terminal operator will then enter the literal "L" in the seventh position of line 1, input entry code and depress the "Enter" key.
  3. When the literal ‘R’ is entered in the first position of any batch line 3–23 the TIN, Disposal Code, and Name Control entered on the previous line is repeated for the current line if those fields are left blank. For example, if an ‘R’ is entered in position 1 and positions 21–24 (name control) is left blank the name control from the previous line will be issued. If position 21–24 is not left blank whatever value is entered will be used whether or not there is an ‘R’ in the first position of the line.
