Sender and Receiver Qualifiers

do anyone know ho to make the TN able to recognize a Sender or Receiver in a EDIFACT document when the Sender and Receiver Qualifier don’t exist?

we use different values for these qualifiers, like 01, 04, 09, 14, ZZ… and for all of them I’m able to recognize the partner.
in the partner profile I add an external ID setting the ID type according the qualifier.
but I don’t know what to do if the qualifier don’t exist.


In the case if you havent received any qualifier then you need to discuss this issue with your partners and your company and mutually decide that in this case to setup Defualt DUNS or DUNS+4 or UserDefined or MutuallyDefined external ids for processing the incoming documents with out causing any Errors.

Sorry if it didnt work.

I’ve used X12 standard, but this may also apply to EDIFACT.
