DNID = Data Network Identifier

How many digits of the DNID identify the country? Three digits identify the country. One of these 3 digits identify the zone, and the other two identify the country within the zone.


HIC = Hierarchical Ingredient Code: First Data Bank is the creator of this code. Usually, the first ingredient in the HIC is the most active and is the one we are most concerned with. It is a 6-character code.
