External-Only Data Elements
« on: October 08, 2018, 11:19:25 AM »
Since a NOMADS Data Element marked as External-Only is not supposed to take up space in the record, does it matter where in the list of data elements such a field is identified? Beginning, end, middle, mixed?

Thanks!

An external only element can be placed anywhere however in general i suggest trying to avoid using external only fields.
