Submission of a Space in Mandatory Data on Multiple SPA Files
It has been brought to our attention that Shippers have been submitting files (e.g. MSI, EMC & CNF) with a Space populated in mandatory fields instead of the required data item (e.g. Y/N). As Space is allowable ASCII value, AMT has not rejected the inbound file, however, once SAP has carried out its lower level validation it is unable to ‘play back’ the data in the appropriate rejection file as Space is not populated in the data item and is treated as a null value so the outbound rejection file is rejected by AMT as not having all mandatory data items populated.
Two defects are associated with this Change Proposal:
- 306 - Outbound - SPA - MSO files failed in Market flow
- 662 - CTR File failed in Market flow
The purpose of this Change Proposal to find a route to handle the files going back out from SAP into AMT to ensure the Shippers receive their files informing them of rejections to allow them to take remedy actions.
