When E1202 is used in the Electronic Form Transaction Set (868) to send a complete transaction set, it is 10 for the first segment and incremented by 10 for each succeeding segment to the end of the transaction set. When used in the Electronic Form Transaction Set to delete or replace an existing segment, it is the matching sequence number of the segment existing in the transaction set. When used in the Electronic Form Transaction Set to add a segment, it is a number which will insert the new segment in its position within the transaction set. If more than nine segments are inserted between existing segments, then a segment must be deleted and added back. Whenever a new version number is used, then all segments must be re-sequenced in increments of 10.
