Getting Started

What is the AQS QA Transaction Generator

The AQS QA Transaction Generator is a standalone MS Windows application that provides a mechanism to manually enter AQS QA transactions or import an AQS QA transaction and generate a valid AQS QA transaction file.  The transaction will be validated against AQS Reference data, if there are warnings or errors you’ll be notified. 

System Requirements

The AQS Transaction Generator has the following system requirements:

-          Microsoft Windows XP or later

-          1 Gigabyte of Hard Disk space

-          Minimum amount of memory to run MS Windows

Install the AQS QA Transaction Generator

-          Download the AQS Transaction Generator Setup program from the TTN website

o   *** Note ***

§  You will need System Administrator rights to install the AQS Transaction Generator

-          Launch the AQS Transaction Generator Setup program

-          Follow the prompts on the screen

How to use the AQS QA Transaction Generator

Start the application by clicking the shortcut from the MS Windows Start Menu.  The AQS QA Transaction Generator Main Menu is the first screen that will be presented to you.  From the Main Menu you can select the action that you wish to perform.  To create, import, load or edit transaction click the ‘Transactions…’ button.  To manually check for updates to the AQS QA Transaction Generator and all Reference data that is used click the ‘Check for Updates…’ button.  An active Internet connection is required.  To manage saved Transactions click the ‘Manage Saved Transactions…’ button from the Main Menu.

The AQS QA Transaction Generator will automatically check for updates each time it is launched, if an update is available you’ll be prompted to install the updates.  You can decide to skip the update and install it at your convenience.

Transaction Element Conventions

The AQS QA Transaction Generator uses a common set of indicators to indicate the status of a transaction.  Simply by looking at a transaction screen you can easily determine what elements are required, are valid, have an error or have a warning.  You can view the message associated with each indicator by clicking on it.

The following indicators are used:

-          correct.png- The transactional element is valid

o   Clicking on the control will display a message indicating the transactional element is valid for AQS

-          Required.PNG - The transactional element is required for this transaction

o   Required transactional elements may depending on the value selected for the ‘Action Indicator’

o   Clicking on the control will display a message indicating the transactional element is required for AQS

-          warning2.png - The transactional element is not valid but AQS will currently accept the value used

o   Clicking on the control will display the warning message associated with the transactional element

-          error.png - The transactional element is in error and must be corrected

o   AQS will not accept the value that was provided, it must be corrected before a valid transaction can be generated

o   Clicking on the control will display the error message associated with the transactional element

Transaction Element specific help

The AQS QA Transaction Generator uses a common control to display help for each transactional element.  The label or element description for each transactional element is a clickable link.  Clicking label or transactional element description will display help for that transactional element.

Create an AQS QA Transaction File

You can manually create an AQS QA Transaction by clicking the ‘Transactions…’ button from the Main Menu.  The ‘Generate / Edit / Load Transactions’ screen will be displayed.  To create a list of Transactions click the ‘Add…’ button, select the AQS QA Transaction that you wish to create from the list.
