Altova MapForce 2023 Enterprise Edition

Generating an X12 999 Implementation Acknowledgment

Home Prev Top Next

The X12 999 (Implementation Acknowledgment) reports X12 non-compliance or application errors. Because it is a super-set of the 997 Functional Acknowledgement, 999 can be used instead of 997 to accept or reject transaction sets based on either X12 or HIPAA Implementation Guide syntax requirements.


All errors encountered during processing of the document are reported in it (for example, "Required Segment Missing", "Required Data Element Missing", "Code Value Not Used in Implementation", etc). MapForce can automatically generate the X12 999 component on the mapping, and automatically create the necessary mapping connections.

To generate the X12 999 Implementation Acknowledgment:

1.On the Insert menu, click EDI, and add the X12 or HIPAA component to the mapping. When prompted to select as instance file, browse for the file for which you want to create the X12 999 acknowledgement.

2.Right-click the title bar of the EDI component and select Create mapping to EDI X12 999 (note this command is enabled only for X12 and HIPAA components).


This creates an EDI 999 mapping component and automatically connects the items needed to generate the X12 999 implementation acknowledgment. To preview the generated acknowledgment file, click the Output tab. If the mapping has multiple target components, first click the Preview ( ic-preview ) button, and then click the Output tab.


To save the 999 Acknowledgement file:

Click the Output tab, and then click the Save generated output ( ic-save-gen-out ) toolbar button. If you intend to generate program code from the mapping, enter a file name in the "Output EDI File" field of the Component Settings dialog box (see EDI Component Settings).
