GS Segment

  • A functional group of related transaction sets, within the scope of X12 standards, consists of a collection of similar transaction sets enclosed by a functional group header and a functional group trailer.

BIG Segment

  • BIG 07: CREDIT MEMO SPECIFIC: Only Used for Credit Memo. FD SPECIFIC: Miscellaneous Service Invoice is only used for service charges without line items, such as a freight invoice
  • BIG 10: CREDIT MEMO SPECIFIC: Only used when BIG07 = CR, which references an existing invoice
  • FD SPECIFIC: Family Dollar cannot accept corrected invoices unless an EDI 864 Transaction notifies you of the rejection. If a new invoice is required please send a credit invoice followed by a new invoice complete with a new invoice number.

REF Segment

  • REF 01: FD SPECIFIC – This is a required use of this REF segment.

If this ID is not provided Family Dollar will default to the primary ID number.
