    I placed the Opening Nemeth Code Indicator at the margin of the line following the separation lines under the headings in the table. The answer choices that follow the table are Nemeth and are in 3-5 format although none of them wrap. There isn’t room for the closing Nemeth terminator at the end of letter D and its amounts. Would the terminator go in cell 5 on the next line like wrap, or in cell 1 on the next line or?

    Thank you so much!

    Barb,

    Thank you for your question and patience. The other members of the NBA Nemeth Code for Math and Science Committee and I agree that the Nemeth Code terminator you’re asking about should go in the runover position of the last answer choice.

    A BRF of item 2 from your example file is attached; a picture of that BRF is also attached.

    Upon further reflection, there is an argument for keeping the last part of answer choice D ($0.75) on a line with the Nemeth Code terminator (see attached), because there is no rule requiring that $0.75 be on the same line as the rest of the regular list that makes up answer choice D, and forcing a line break before $0.75 would keep the Nemeth Code terminator on a line with material that it is enclosing.
