Need more info.  I don't know what cpo and on testing phase means, or what is a mission entity code?

Call the insurance company that you billed and asked them what exactly the need and what entity code the need and where you should place it, if it's a paper claim, if electronic claim, click on the electronic reject field and it will give you all the options and description, depending on what software you use.
