PAX Reference Data Record Part 1&2

 In the IS-IDEC, using the SFI (Standard Field Identifier), we can determine the structure of the record for all records except PAX Reference Data Record - Part 1 & 2.  For PAX Reference Data Record - Part 1 & 2, we need to know the Record Serial No (Element 8) in addition to SFI  to determine the structure of the record. It seems it breaks the uniformity of the layout. Would you please check why it is that way? Thanks a lot.

Lori,
 
In case of PAX Reference Data Record, the data requirement was going beyond the defined 500 character space and hence it had to be broken into 2 records (Part 1 and Part 2).
 
 Also there are 2 sets of records expected when the reference information is provided (one for billing entity and one for billed entity). Hence, SFIs were defined to distinguish if the details provided are of the Billing Entity or the Billed Entity and Record Serial No defined to identify if it is the Part 1 data or Part 2 data.
 
Best regards
