Add support for alpha numeric TransactionId values in TLog data

Currently, TransactionId (trn_nbr) field in the TLog data feed is an INT data type.This should be changed to a "STRING" data type to support alphanumeric TransactionId values.  Several retailers have transactionId values which are "strings" or alpha numeric values. Also, for ECOM sales, several retailers use OMS OrderNumbers as TransactionId values which can also be alphanumeric.

How will this idea be used?

Several retailers have transactionId values which are "strings" or alpha numeric values. Also, for ECOM sales, several retailers use OMS OrderNumbers as TransactionId values which can also be alphanumeric.  

This would make it easier for customers to send us the correct data without having to do additional transformation to convert alpha numeric values to INT values.
