Section 56. Command Code ESTABR

(1) This transmits revised IRM 2.3.56, IDRS Terminal Responses, Command Code ESTABR.
(1) This IRM has been revised to include internal control information.
Chief Information Officer
The IDRS Document Request System provides for computer updating of the Retired Document File.
Purpose: This transmits revised IRM 2.3.56, IDRS Terminal Responses, Command Code (CC) ESTABR.
Audience: All IRS business units.
Program Owner: Customer Service.
Primary Stakeholders: Wage & Investment (W&I), Large Business and International (LB&I), Small Business Self-Employed (SB/SE), Tax Exempt and Government Entities (TE/GE).
Program Goals: This system manages data that was extracted from Corporate Account Data Stores (BMF, IMF, and EPMF) allowing IRS employees to take specific actions on taxpayer account issues and track status of an account.
The use of Command Code (CC) ESTAB with CC Modifier " R" is intended for the exclusive use of the Service Center Files area to enter the current retirements of documents to the Federal Records Center.
As these are retirements of documents, no future date may be entered. The System Date is used to determine whether a "To Julian Day " is the equivalent of a future date. If so, 10 years are subtracted from that date. (This information is utilized by the batch processing of Document Requests).
The Document Request System relies on the one digit Year Count of the Document Locator Number, therefore no record on the Retired Documents File is valid for more than 10 years.
It is important to update the Retired Document File at least once per record per 10 years. If a record has become obsolete, make use of the delete feature to keep the file current.
The screen input allows for 1–20 requests using the same common data elements. The screen is checked for format, validity, and consistency errors. Successfully filled in screens are then sent to another Command Code (RETRQ) to write the requests on the GENDATA File. This second command code is not seen by the terminal operator. Upon successful completion, the data for the common elements and a "REQUEST COMPLETED " message is displayed to the terminal operator.
The Update Code, Federal Record Center Code, Year Count and File Location Code will be stored for Audit Trail purposes.
CC ESTAB with CC Modifiers " D" (Document Requests) and "M" (Microfilm Requests) are documented in IRM 2.3.17 and 2.3.18 respectively.
As of January 1, 2004 ESTAB users will be require to input the Command Code (column 1-5), CC modifier (column 6), and the Request Code (column 7) on line 1 of their IDRS terminal screen, then depress Enter/XMIT. CC ESTAB will display the requested screen, based on requester inputted modifier.
If any element of data is incorrectly formatted, invalid, or inconsistent, a error message will display on line 24. An asterisk will display to the right of the invalid or inconsistent element. The format error message is explained further in See IRM 126.96.36.199. Invalid error messages are detailed in See IRM 188.8.131.52. Inconsistent error messages are discussed in See IRM 184.108.40.206.
"REQUEST COMPLETED" is displayed when the common data entry input to CC ESTAB meets all format, validity, and consistency checks.
Update codes are one character alphabetical codes input with CC ESTAB with CC Modifier "R" . They are used to identify the type of request being made. The request codes are:
"A" — This Update Code will add a new record to the Retired Document File or update an existing record on the same file.
"D" — This Update Code will delete an existing record on the Retired Document File.
When Universal Access is used, the message " CC DEFINER NOT UNIVERSAL, USE LOCAL SITE" will be displayed on line 24. This the first check of Command Code ESTAB with Command Code Modifier "R" . This command code modifier will not process Universal Access.
When a significant blank or hyphen position between two fields immediately adjacent to it is either not a blank or a hyphen, the message "PLEASE CORRECT FORMAT" will appear on line 24. This check for format will be done prior to the validity and consistency checks. Processing will not continue if it is not satisfied.
When an element of data is invalid an Error Message will be displayed on line 24. The invalid element will have a "*" to the right of the invalid element.
Error Messages Invalid, CC Modifier is not "D" , "M" , or "R" Invalid Request-Code, Request-Code must be "A" or "D" Invalid FRC, a valid FRC must be entered Invalid FRC, enter a valid FRC Invalid, Year Count must be numeric Invalid File-Location-Code, FLC must be numeric Invalid Tax-Class, Tax Class must be numeric Invalid Doc-Code, Doc-Code must be numeric Invalid From-Julian-Day, Julian-Day must be numeric Invalid From-Julian-Day, valid values are between 001 and 366 Invalid To-Julian-Day, Julian-Day must be numeric Invalid To-Julian-Day, valid values are between 001 and 366
When an element of data is inconsistent it will be flagged with an asterisk to the right of the element. An error message will be displayed on line 24, see below.
Error Messages Solution Invalid, the above Tax-Class and Doc-Code do not go together, please change. Correct either the Tax Class or the Document Code Invalid, From-Julian-Day must not be higher than To-Julian-Day Correct either the From-Julian-Day so that it is earlier or equal to the To-Julian-Day; or change the To-Julian-Day so that it is equal or later than the From Julian Day
