Throughout this document, the term 'Ordering Customer' refers to either an Ordering Customer, or a Payor or Agent acting (sending) on behalf of the Ordering Customer; likewise the term 'Beneficiary' refers to either a Beneficiary, or a Payee or Agent acting on behalf of the Beneficiary.

4. MESSAGE DEFINITION


4.1. Data Segment Clarification

This section should be read in conjunction with the Segment Table which indicate mandatory, conditional and repeating requirements.

The following semantic principles applying to the message are intended to facilitate the understanding of the message:

The Multiple Payment Order message is structured in three levels:

A,B, and C. In the Branching Diagram, level A corresponds to page 1, level B corresponds to page 2, and level C corresponds to pages 3 and 4.

-A level contains data related to the whole message and is contained in Segment Group 1 and Segment Group 2 and the Heading section.

-B level contains data from the debit side (one debit account, one currency, one execution date) and data which applies to all further details of C level(s) and is contained in Segment Group 3 through Segment Group 9.

-C level contains mainly data related to the credit side, and this data is considered as unique for each payment transaction and is contained in Segment Group 10 through Segment Group 21.

Where a choice of code or text is given only the code element should be used wherever possible.
