Description

Section 1.10.2.12 in the Front Matter of the 835 guide states "The reference number in PLB03-2 will contain the same number as the trace number used in TRN02 of the current transaction." Can the PLB03-2 contain additional information along with the TRN02 value? For example:
TRN02=123456789
PLB03-2=123456789-ABCDEF

Response

This issue is explicitly addressed in guide 005010X221. Section 1.10.2.12 states "The reference number in PLB03-2 will contain the same number as the trace number used in TRN02 of the current transaction." There is no provision for additional information, and the wording doesn't state that PLB03-2 must 'include' the number used in TRN02.

Therefore, additional information can't be sent along with the TRN02 value.

Recommendation

If you desire that the PLB03-2 value include additional information, include that information as well in TRN02.
