04 Update (partial) In ONIX 3.0 only, use when sending a ‘block update’ record. In previous ONIX releases, ONIX updating has generally been by complete record replacement using code 03, and code 04 is not used 11
05 Delete Use when sending an instruction to delete a record which was previously issued.

A Delete instruction is used ONLY when there is a particular reason to withdraw a record completely, eg because it was issued in error 0
