Fuji Quickload – relationship between the ID code on the envelope and the film rebate code 1

Someone over at the UK LF Forum was asking about the relationship between the code printed on a Quickload envelope and that’s marked with orange light on the rebate.
There is a relative relationship between the code on the envelope and that on the film. Once you know one relationship in that batch (the first two letters of the code) you can extrapolate forwards or backwards from that point. The code on the envelope is numbered in decimal, that on the film uses an alpha code using A-J So once you know that BE-3932 on the envelope relates to BE-DJGE you can work back and forth from this point:Envelope Film

BE-3931 BE-DJGD
BE-3932 BE-DJGE
BE-3933 BE-DJGF
BE-3934 BE-DJGG
BE-3935 BE-DJGH
BE-3936 BE-DJGI
BE-3937 BE-DJGJ
BE-3938 BE-DJHA
BE-3939 BE-DJHB
BE-3940 BE-DJHC
I’ve found that this relationship holds true for Velvia (50, 100 and 100F), Provia, and Acros

    I’ll be experimenting with this on my next batch.. Have you worked out why it’s not a direct conversion of the last two letters?
