The Generate Filegram option is used by a filegram sender. Be sure that the DUZ correctly identifies the filegram sender; the DUZ is used to identify the filegram's sender to the recipient. The option creates a filegram in MailMan message format after you designate a file, FILEGRAM-type template, and a file entry. Concurrently, it creates a record in the FILEGRAM HISTORY File (the FILEGRAM HISTORY file [#1.12] points to the MESSAGE file [#3.9].) The record created in the FILEGRAM HISTORY file is called a filegram history. The filegram history allows VA FileMan to differentiate between a filegram message and a mail message. After the filegram is placed into the mail message, you can send it to an individual at any established address.
You can only send one entry at a time. The following dialogue illustrates the generation of a filegram:
