Description

The values for NM101 are different for the request and the response. Shouldn't the request and the response contain the same values?

The repeat for this loop on the request is 1, however the repeat on the response is 2. When can a second iteration be included in a response?

Response

Both of these issues are the result of the Notification functionality being supported within the Request and Response guide under a previous version. When the notification functionality was removed and its' own guide developed some of the functionality was not completely removed from the Request and Response. The intent of the WG is that the values in NM101, loop 2010B of both the request and response should be the same and the response should only have one repeat of the 2010B loop. This will be corrected in the next version of the TR3.

Recommendation

It is recommended that on the request only values 1P and FA in the NM1 segment, loop 2010B be used since those are the only values supported on the response. It is also recommended that only one repeat of the 2010B loop in the response be used.
