Just seen your blog post on EGW as opposed to G as the gross weight qualifier. Coincidentally we have been making the same mistake until it was brought to my attention this morning. I'd like to switch to EGW, but we have a number of terminals receiving COPRAR from us using "G". I can't find anywhere official defining EGW, and before switching I'd like to be able to point anyone who complains at a suitable standards reference. Do you have one? Is it acceptable in 95B?
Also, less important, what do you make of the following:
AAE Item gross weight
Gross weight at line item level.
AAG Gross weight (item level)
Self explanatory to whom, I can't help wondering...
Thanks Gekseppe, it's great to find a place like this, I was I had known about it for longer. I am the EDI "specialist" (for want of a better word) for a large UK company. We own ports, terminals and a few shipping lines, so deal with all manner of EDI. Whilst you can often find very good documentation online, this is the first place I've found where you can talk about it informally, and I'm looking forward to using it in the future :-)
