In a previous post we looked at EXTOL EBI File Adapters. File Adapters can be used for the following actions:

  • Read
  • Write
  • Move
  • Copy

Below we review how to use the Substitution Variable Creator.

Step One: Create File Adapter - Write

We will create a write adapter with the prefix of "EDI_Data_"
