DTC CP 3394 - Removal of Trailing Space from J0483 Valid Set Value

Current Status Implemented Implementation Date 07/11/2013
Version Related Changes

Executive Summary

This CP will remove the space at the end of Value 'S2 ' in Data Item J0483 (Meter Type) which has an extra space character at its end. The problem stems from the fact that a number of Data Flow creation tools take the values available in drop down boxes for populating flows directly from the Access database accompanying each DTC release. Flows containing a J0483 where the valid set value is S2 created using one of these tools may be rejected by a counterparties system that does not recognise the code as valid because it has a trailing space and so is three characters long instead of the expected two characters.
