National Drug Code (NDC)
A field that exists in the DRUG file (#50), ITEM MASTER file (#441 ) and NDF. With some formatting adjustments the field is used to match entries in otherwise unlinked files and open the door for comparative displays and reports. The code itself contains a maximum of 12 digits. The first six digits are the manufacturers code, the next four are the product code, and the last two digits are the package code.
