If you want someone to perform the file creation and download process for you, please contact a Client Service Representative. Some credit unions may also qualify for delivery of AIRES information directly to an examiner. For either service, a small processing fee will apply. Find the AIRES File Request Form in the CU*Answers Store or https://www.cuanswers.com/wp-content/uploads/AIRESFileRequest.pdf

Screen Overview

The first step in using the AIRES files for management review or download to an examiner is to actually generate the files from your CU*BASE database.

AIRES files can be created for any previous month for which there are month-end files. (As usual, it may be necessary to contact your CU*BASE representative in order to use month-end files from a previous month. There is a nominal charge if this service is required.) Keep in mind, however, that only one set of files can exist at one time. In other words, if you create files for June, any existing files from a different month will be replaced by the new June file.

If you are preparing the files to be reviewed by credit union staff, you may wish to include member name and Social Security number along with the account data. When preparing files for download to an examiner, depending on your examiner requirements, you may choose to exclude this information to protect member privacy.

Use Enter to begin creation of the files. CU*BASE will run through your member share and loan files and extract key information required by the AIRES system. Several separate files are actually created, including:

AIRESSH

Contains share account information, formatted for viewing using the View AIRES Files feature.

In this file, there are two fields that both contain the Dividend Application or CD Type code: SHASTC and SHDIVA.

AIRESLN

Contains loan account data formatted for viewing using the View AIRES Files feature.

In this file, both the LNALPC and LNPURP fields contain the Purpose Code; the LNALTC field contains the Loan Category code.

AIRESSHDN

Contains share account information, formatted for downloading to a PC (see the Working With AIRES and CU*BASE booklet for details).

AIRESLNDN

Contains loan account data, formatted for downloading to a PC (see the Working With AIRES and CU*BASE booklet for details).

The process is usually very quick, depending on the size of your member files. When done, use the View AIRES File option to look at the contents of the file.

CU*TIP: Only one set of AIRES files is actually stored at a time; new files being created will overwrite any existing files. Occasionally, you may experience difficulty creating a new AIRES file due to a problem with overwriting an existing file. If this occurs, simply use the Delete AIRES Files feature to remove the old files, then proceed with creating a new set.
