Common Errors:

Error Message: ShipmentIdentification: ASN# Invalid data EA in ShipQtyUOM in line 82, column 52. The value 'EA' is not one of the possible choices [CA] in ShipQtyUOM

How to resolve: Ensure your SN103 = CA within each repetition; this is often an error because the 850 is sent out in EA but the return documents are expected in CA.

Error Message: ShipmentIdentification: ASN# Missing element: expect ShipQtyUOM before ending Shipment Line

How to resolve: This error often occurs with the first error listed; once that is corrected this will automatically rectify this portion.

Error Message: ShipmentIdentification: ASN# Invalid data C in CarrierTransMethodCode in line 25, column 63. The value 'C' is not one of the possible choices [A, D, M, R, S, U, L, T, H]

How to resolve:  Page 9 of the specifications; TD504 has the 9 options that OSJL accepts into their system; ensure you’re using one of those options. They are also in the error message.

Error Message: ShipmentIdentification: ASN#  Missing element: expect Vendor before ending Order Header in line 66,column 23

How to resolve: Page 24 of the specifications; Ensure you have an REF*IA segment where your REF02=Your Vendor Number. This repetition is located between your PRF and HL loop.

Element FOB01 (Shipment Method of Payment) does not contain a valid identification code: 'CO' is not allowed. Segment FOB is defined in the guideline at position 0800.

How to resolve: Page 15 of the specifications; Ensure you’re FOB01 is one of the two options provided in the specifications; CC or PP

MIN/MAX errors; this can occur in ANY field on your document; below is an example of how it is phrased:

Error Message: ShipmentIdentification: ASN# Invalid data 201411226 in DTM02. DTM02 requires text with at least 6 to a max of 8 characters not 9 characters but contains 201411226

How to resolve: Ensure your field follows within the Min/Max limitations within that field. Even though the error states ‘but contains 201411226’ that still is considered the erred data that needs to be adjusted
