Back  RFI # 362: Control Numbers in Envelopes

Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal


Robert Wolinski


Control number on GS segment. In a situation where functional groups are reported under an Interchange Envelope, must the control number from one GS segment to the next be unique. The guide is clear on the ST segment, but on the GS it is rather vague. Common sense tells me it should be.


"The combination of GS01 (Functional ID)/GS02 (Sender ID)/GS03
(Receiver ID)/GS06 (Functional Group control number) has to be unique
within an interchange. If the GS01, GS02, and GS03 are the same
between two functional groups then the values in GS06 have to be
different between the two functional groups. If GS01, GS02, or GS03
differs between the two functional groups then GS06 can be the same."
