Here's some good news from the Unimatic front. You can now see your hotel and transportation information when you pull up your trip ID. Well sort of....you can't see it if you just type in the request in the quick, shortcut way like, DSPID/5249/12. Instead, you've got tell the computer to display the hotel information. Here's what you do:
Type in DSPID/ (remember to type in the slash after DSPID) and press ENTER.
You'll see the following response:
ID# DATE EQP CAT TZ POS HTL ;DSPID/ ____/MM- DD-YY/ ___/ S/ ___/ ___/ _
You would then enter in the ID number, the date, and then go to the last column labeled HTL and type an 'H' under it. Then press ENTER.
ID# DATE EQP CAT TZ POS HTL ;DSPID/ 5249/MM- 07-YY/ ___/ S/ ___/ ___/ H
You'll get the following response:
