EDI 824 Application Advice

Functional Group AG

X12F Finance Subcommittee

This Draft Standard for Trial Use contains the format and establishes the data contents of the Application Advice Transaction Set (824) for use within the context of an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) environment. The transaction set can be used to provide the ability to report the results of an application system's data content edits of transaction sets. The results of editing transaction sets can be reported at the functional group and transaction set level, in either coded or free-form format. It is designed to accommodate the business need of reporting the acceptance, rejection or acceptance with change of any transaction set. The Application Advice should not be used in place of a transaction set designed as a specific response to another transaction set (e.g., purchase order acknowledgement sent in response to a purchase order).
