TINS Codes
Exception (Error) Messages

TINS exception codes and messages appear on non-processed/warning reports for transactions submitted by batch. Only the error codes display on the Payee Maintenance Transaction History (PMTHIS) screen.

TINS displays error messages during online entry and are self-explanatory. However, error messages that appear during online processing do not appear on PMTHIS as the user is required to correct the errors before online transactions can process successfully.
