Overview of the ALI Formatting Tool
The ALI Formatting Tool (AFT) reads the automatic location information (ALI) 
file generated by Cisco ER and displays all the ELIN records in the AFT interface. 
You can use AFT to:
Easily view the details of the ALI records. ALI files are difficult to read in the 
NENA fixed length format. AFT reads the ALI files and presents the NENA 
fields in an interface that is easy to read.
Select a record and update the value for ALI fields. AFT allows you to edit 
the ALI fields to customize them to meet the requirements of different service 
providers. You service provider can then read the reformatted ALI files and 
use them to update their ELIN records.
Perform bulk updates on multiple ALI records. Using the bulk update feature, 
you can apply common changes to all the records that you have selected, to 
one area code, or to one area code and one city code.
Selectively export ALI records based on Area Code, City Code or a 4 digit 
Directory Number. By selecting to export all the ALI records in an Area 
Code, for example, you can quickly access all the ELIN records for each 
service provider allowing you to easily support multiple service providers.
