Using code lists in EDI specifications ensures that unique field values are used in the related EDI messages. A code list thus provides an excellent means of specifying values precisely and supporting both the EDI data architect and the implementer with the same vocabulary.
Code lists serve as value inventories from which codes are selected and transmitted in an electronic document. Since code lists are very comprehensive and contain all code values possible in a given context, they improve uniqueness by restricting codes in the GEFEG.FX Guide where possible. For example, the country code in the address field could be limited to “DE” if you operate exclusively within Germany.
Our recommendation: Link your guides in GEFEG.FX to code lists and use a simple selection to determine which codes are eligible for selected fields.
If you ask yourself any of the following questions …
- How do I update an existing code list in GEFEG.FX?
- For which industry or company-specific codes do I create my own code list?
- What do I have to do to make a code list multilingual?
- How do I output a code selection in the documentation of my EDI specification?
… please join our webinar: we will provide you with the answers. And you will learn how to use code lists in XML Schema and EDI guides.
