This will be a short post but I just wanted to celebrate. I may have gone overboard with the genius thing but I feel like one! My ACA XML file went through! So the only thing we have to do is resolve the name/SSN errors, of which there are 40. As far as I'm concerned, I've succeeded. The name/SSN is something our benefits folks will have to investigate. I will send corrections upon receipt of the new changes.
But I have succeeded!
So now I will write up a series of posts on what you need to do in order to get your data into XML format.
