We have recently received inquiries about an increased number of Last Extract Warnings being seen in TAI .NET release 3.2 and above. This FAQ blog provides answers as to why this is occurring.
What is a Last Extract Warning?
The Last Extract Warning message is generated from the interface when a policy record has not been extracted for a specified period of time.
When do Last Extract Warnings Appear?
Last Extract Warning messages appear when a policy has not been extracted in the period of time specified in the TAIB110 extract check parameter.
Why is there an increase in Last Extract Warnings in TAI .NET release 3.2 and above?
There are more last extract date warnings seen in later releases, due to more statuses of the policies being included in the check of when the policies were last extracted. In releases of TAI.net prior to 3.2, policies in terminated, ETI (Extended Term), RPU (Reduced Paid Up), and PDU (Paid Up) statuses were not checked against their last extract date. Beginning with release 3.2, and in subsequent releases, policies in terminated status are still not checked; ETI, RPU, and PDU statuses are included in the check, however. This increases the number of last extract date warnings generated by the interface cycle.
