NCPDP SCRIPT Auto-Completion Rules

When generating an NCPDP SCRIPT file, MapForce automatically generates certain fields or values, according to the rules below (referred to as "automatic data completion", or "auto-completion" rules). To disable this behaviour, clear the Auto-complete missing fields check box in EDI Component Settings.


The following fields will be automatically completed:
