Expiring cards report

The expiring cards report provides you with a list of cards that are due to expire. QuickStream will generate the report at the start of each month. You can then upload the report into your system and notify your customers about their expiring cards.

File format

The report is plain text using UTF-8 character encoding. All records except the last are separated by the CR LF end-of-line marker. Fields may be enclosed in double quotes. If double quotes enclose a field, then a double quote appearing inside a field is escaped by preceding it with another double quote.

There are two types of records in this file:

Record Type Description
File Header One record at the start of the expiring cards report.
It contains the file headings.
This record will be followed immediately by a Card Detail record.
Card Detail One record for each card that is expiring.
There may be many Card Detail records in the file.
