Some particular mapping notes for the Family Dollar EDI 856 Ship Notice/Manifest transaction are given below.
- At least one of N102 or N103 is required.
- If either N103 or N104 is present, then the other is required.
- This segment, used alone, provides the most efficient method of providing organizational identification. To obtain this efficiency the “ID Code” (N104) must provide a key to the table maintained by the transaction processing party.
- N105 and N106 further define the type of entity in N101.
- If N406 is present, then N405 is required.
- A combination of either N401 through N404, or N405 and N406 may be adequate to specify a location.
- N402 is required only if city name (N401) is in the U.S. or Canada.
- If either MAN04 or MAN05 is present, then the other is required.
- If MAN06 is present, then MAN05 is required.
- MAN01/MAN02 and MAN04/MAN05 may be used to identify two different marks and numbers assigned to the same physical container.
- When both MAN02 and MAN03 are used, MAN02 is the starting number of a sequential range and MAN03 is the ending number of that range.
- When both MAN05 and MAN06 are used, MAN05 is the starting number of a sequential range, and MAN06 is the ending number of that range.
- When MAN01 contains code “UC” (U.P.C. Shipping Container Code) and MAN05/MAN06 contain a range of ID numbers, MAN03 is not used. The reason for this is that the U.P.C. Shipping Container code is the same on every carton that is represented in the range in MAN05/MAN06.
- MAN03 and/or MAN06 are only used when sending a range(s) of ID numbers. When both MAN02/MAN03 and MAN05/MAN06 are used to send ranges of ID numbers, the integrity of the two ID numbers must be maintained.
