Finding Information on OSIS – The OIL Transaction

Have you ever been researching a child support case, or completing work needed on a child support case, and went completely blank when you went to use a seldom-used OSIS transaction? Do you have problems remembering the names of CMOD or WebFOCUS reports, or the slight distinctions between the multiple medical reports?

The OIL Transaction List (OSIS Information Look-Up) is an up to date listing of frequently (and not so frequently) used OSIS transactions and reports, grouped by subject area. The T-User guides are also included, so you can not only see the obscure OSIS transaction or report, but also see the definition of the transaction or report to ensure you are looking in the correct spot for information.

Screen shows a Select column with numbers 01 through 11; an Item column with the subject areas of AEI, CaseMgmt, Enforce, Finance, Initiate, Intrstat, Locate, Medical, Pat-Est, Report, and Rev-Adj; a Type column with the word Menu; and, a Description column with a brief description, such as AEI (Admin Enforcement of Interstate), Case Management, etc.  Screen also has a Select entry field, and how to move to the either the Main Menu (PF1) or Previous Menu (PF3).  There is a Next entry field and a space at the bottom of the screen for Warning or Edit messages.

Let’s go through a couple of scenarios so you understand how to use this list screen and its sub-menus.

Screens

If you are looking for how to cross-reference a benefits case to a FGN, but can’t remember the name of the transaction used to do that, you would come to the OIL screen and type 04 for Finance transaction. This sub-menu will appear:

Screen shows a Select column with numbers 01 through 13; an Item column with subject areas, such FINADJ, FINALL, FINBAL, etc.; a Type column with the word Menu; and, a Description column with a brief description, such as Adjustment Transactions, Allocation Transactions, Balance Transactions, etc.  Screen also has a Select entry field, and how to move to the either the Main Menu (PF1) or Previous Menu (PF3).  On this screen it is possible to press enter for additional menu selections. There is a Next entry field and a space at the bottom of the screen for Warning or Edit messages.

You will then enter 05 for “Miscellaneous Finance Transactions.” As you page through the lists of screens, you reach page 4, and see 13 – XRA – URA Cross Reference Add.

Screen shows a Select column with numbers 01 through 13; an Item column with subject areas, such OTCI, PTDFI,, etc.; a Type column with the word Menu; and, a Description column with a brief description, such as Oklahoma Tax Inquiry, Plaintiff and Defendant Inquiry, etc.  Screen also has a Select entry field, and how to move to the either the Main Menu (PF1) or Previous Menu (PF3).  On this screen it is possible to press enter for additional menu selections. There is a Next entry field and a space at the bottom of the screen for Warning or Edit messages.

Just to be sure that this is the right screen, you want to see what T-User says about XRA. Enter 13 in the Select field at the bottom of the screen to access T-User:

The XRA screen shows the Purpose of the screen and how to access the screen.  It also shows how to access a list of data elements with descriptions and valid codes.

Reports

This same process works for reports, both CMOD and WebFOCUS. Let’s try another scenario. You have been tasked with helping your office improve their medical performance measures, and you are looking for FGNs with obligations where medical hasn’t been ordered. Type OIL at the Next: field on any screen. Type 10 for reports at the Select: field and you get the below screen.

Screen shows a Select column with numbers 01 through 03; an Item column with subject areas of REPIMSME, REPWEBFO, and REPRDSRE; a Type column with the word Menu; and, a Description column with a brief description of IMS Reports, WebFocus Reports, and CMOD Reports.  Screen also has a Select entry field, and how to move to the either the Main Menu (PF1) or Previous Menu (PF3).  There is a Next entry field and a space at the bottom of the screen for Warning or Edit messages.

You are fairly certain that the report is in CMOD, so you enter 03 in the Select: field.

Screen shows a Select column with numbers 01 through 12; an Item column with subject areas such as RAEII, RCMAN, RDOCS, etc.; a Type column with the word Menu; and, a Description column with a brief description such as AEI Reports, Case Management Reports, Document Generation Reports, etc..  Screen also has a Select entry field, and how to move to the either the Main Menu (PF1) or Previous Menu (PF3).  There is a Next entry field and a space at the bottom of the screen for Warning or Edit messages.

Then enter 09 in the Select field for Medical Reports in CMOD.

Screen shows a Select column with numbers 01 through 13; an Item column with subject areas, such CE374M01, CS303R01, CS393M01, etc.; a Type column with the word TUSER; and, a Description column with a brief description, such as OHCA Cases with Tribal Affiliation, MED5CA Notices Selection Results, Child Medical Update Report, etc.  Screen also has a Select entry field, and how to move to the either the Main Menu (PF1) or Previous Menu (PF3).  On this screen it is possible to press enter for additional menu selections. There is a Next entry field and a space at the bottom of the screen for Warning or Edit messages.

You found the report you needed – Child Support Medical Insurance Report.

However, you might also want to check out report 08 – Review and Adjust Medical Cases without Medical Insurance so enter 08 in the Select field to access the T-User for this report:
The CX409R01 report shows the Purpose of the report and how report is sorted.  It also shows the source of the report and the process the report supports.

NOTE: The OIL Transaction is updated by CBECS staff each time a project is completed, including new transactions and new reports.
