What is the loan/share type map template and where can I find it?

The mapping template is used to map the credit union’s loan/share type codes to a standard NCUA list of type codes for better analytics and loan review selection. There are separate type map templates for loans and another one for shares. A type map template is required to upload loan and share files through DEXA. The type map templates can be found on the DEXA webpage.
