Todd Cochrane

Description

For version 005010 and version 005050, based solely on references to the X12 Standards and/or published TR3s, what do the following code value descriptions mean: Simple Data Element 621 I12 Data Element Implementation Pattern Match Failure Simple Data Element 618 I6 Transaction Set Implementation Convention Not Supported

Response

The Simple Data Element 621 Code - I12 Data Element Implementation Pattern Match Failure references the pattern match of data as required by a TR3, for example at the discretion of a guide author a pattern such as state driver s license (e.g., State of Illinois ANNN-NNNN-NNNN). This code expresses the syntactical analysis of the data pattern. The Simple Data Element 618 Code - I6 Transaction Set Implementation Convention Not Supported (often referred to as an implementation guide) references the implementation convention in use for the transaction set. If the convention is not supported in the guide referenced in GS08 of the functional group in which the transaction set is contained the code is to be used to express the error.
