Lineage Load, Validate and Post

Lineage is known as a "Canadian facility" or a premium feed that creates a list of all data from a spreadsheet and enters it into the system.
Lineage data is not supported by risk information in NOVUS.

The posting period must be one month after the `period to` for the lineage feed.
For example, if the lineage feed is for January 2021 then the IBA posting period must be February 2021.
The user will be asked to confirm the accounting date as being the actual date the posting is being made.

The premium on the lineage feed from Canadian cover holders goes straight to Lloyd's and starts with a two-line transaction underwriter debit and brokerage:

LYD 20

XBK 20-

Lineage table has records for all months up to the current month.

File of the inward feed can be found in eg. W:\WP\MDL\BDX\LINEAGE202103.

Data can be previewed by clicking on the view button:


Note: If a user has ever tried to import a LINEAGE spreadsheet but has stopped before hitting the "post to ledgers" button because of a problem, either errors, incorrect number of records, or lower brokerage figures, then some work can be done by Morning Data to return the user to a state where the import can be run again. The LINEAGE import supports multiple files per period via the use of a 'Supplementary' field
