This data element is only used when non coded free text has been provided in data element C108.
This segment is used to provide any free text information related to the complete  quotation message.
Use of this segment in free form is not recommended since it inhibits automatic processing of the Quotation. Coded references to standard texts is an available functionality which enables automatic processing and reduces transmission overheads. Standard texts should be mutually defined among trading partners and can be used to cover legal and other requirements.
Example:
Standard text 001 = 'This quotation is valid for 20 days following date of message'
           
Example:
FTX+AAA+1+1E:23:91+A:A:A:A:A+EN'
Example:
FTX+ZZZ+1+001::91'
