APPENDIX 4: GEOSUPPORT RETURN CODES, REASON CODES AND MESSAGES

This appendix consists of a table listing all of the Geosupport Return Codes (GRCs), Reason Codes and Messages, and the Geosupport function(s) that can elicit each of them. The table is current as of the Geosupport software version indicated in the table heading. See Chapter II.2 for a detailed discussion of application reject handling using GRCs, Reason Codes and Messages.

In the table, an asterisk in the second byte position of a function code is a 'wildcard', signifying all function codes that begin with the character that is in the first byte position. For example, '3* ' signifies all function codes that begin with '3'(namely, as of this writing, Functions 3, 3C and 3S).

An asterisk in the second position of a function code is used as a shorthand notation to represent all function codes having the indicated value in the first position, as follows

1 = 1, 1A, 1B, 1E, 1N, AP
3
= 3, 3C, 3S
B = BB, BF, BL, BN
D
= D, DG, DN

Typically, any function listed with an asterisk also includes the various forms of the function, e.g. Extended, Long, Auxiliary Segments etc.
