    HI Khadar,
    The pdf really helped me in understanding how fix messages are exchanged and how does the specification help the business in interoperability. It would be great if you could have also posted some coding example which shows this in action..I mean some kind of a simulation. I am planning to see the videos soon ..Thanks a lot for this material
