Reiteration of Dispense As Written #0
by: David

"DAW 0 = No product selection indicated.

This is the same as a blank, it just means there are no special instructions.

It is used when there are no special product selection instructions required, such as when there is only one available product of this type.

DAW 0 is the most commonly used code; it is used when the generic is used in place of a brand name product."
