Altova MapForce 2023 Enterprise Edition

NCPDP SCRIPT Auto-Completion Rules

Home Prev Top Next

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:
