MIG codes legend

When reading a MIG (Message Implementation Guide) you might be disoriented from some strange codes close to the segment description. Let's have a sample:

8077 EQUIPMENT SUPPLIER CODE  C   an..3 
1 Shipper supplied
2 Carrier supplied
5 Third party supplied

What's the meaning of 'C' and 'an..3' ?

I guess that this small legend will fix all your doubts ! :)

Status:
   
M= Mandatory
C= Conditional

Size:       
a= alpha character(s)
n= numeric character(s)
an= alphanumeric character(s)
..= size is variable, up to the maximum number indicated
