This code is one of the most important codes used in PIMS because it identifies specifically the type of personnel/payroll action being processed. There are two types of PIMS transaction codes:
Major Transaction is an alphanumeric code prefixed by an A or S. Only one major transaction code is permitted per PIMS transaction.
Miscellaneous Transaction is either all numeric or all alphabetic. Depending on the nature of the actions, up to four miscellaneous transaction codes can be processed as one PIMS transaction.
XXX or XXXC or XXXV
Major transaction (A or S prefix): A52
Miscellaneous transaction (all alpha or numeric): 702
Corrected transaction (C suffix): A52C
Void transaction (V suffix): A52V
