Batch Inquiry Message (Tran Type 14)

Simplify supports a Batch Inquiry message from the POS process. This message is used to obtain information about a current batch.

The scope of this inquiry is determined in the same manner as for a Batch Close message:

  • If the Terminal ID is sent in Field 109 of the Batch Inquiry Request, the inquiry will only apply to transactions run on the PIN pad specified by this Terminal ID.

  • If the Location Name is sent in Field 8002, the inquiry will apply to transactions run in the entire location specified by this Location Name (typically: one store).

  • If the Chain Code is sent in Field 8006, the inquiry will apply to transactions run for the entire chain specified by this Chain Code.

In the following example, the Location Name is sent in Field 8002, so the inquiry will only apply to transactions run in the specified location.

See the Fusebox Integration Guide under "Transaction Types" > "Batch Create and Inquiry (14)" for more information.
