Description

Can you provide guidance as to the use of Loop LX Transaction Set Line Number versus Segment 213 Lading Line Item Number. For X12 110/210 transactions, I am receiving separate LX loops describing shipments (L0/L5/L7). Subsequent LX loops contain charges and discounts relating to the first few Transaction sets. Should these charges/discounts (L1) be included in the respective Transaction Sets, rather than new Transaction sets?

Response

As to your question of charges/discounts (L1) being included in the respective transaction set, when multiple LX loops are present, the expectation is that all of the segments (L1) in that LX loop apply to the commodity being described.  Inclusion of charges/discounts (L1) that apply to a commodity in another LX loop or transaction set is not proper as there is no way to identify the commodity to which they apply.
