Adding Segments to an EDI Schema via Schema Editor

TAGS: EXTOL Schema / EXTOL customization /


BACKGROUND:

Sometimes a customer’s trading partner requirements will require the EBI user to add segments to an EDI Schema.  Instead of breaking the schema and moving the segments around we suggest to copy the needed segment and placing it where it needs to be.

STEP 1 :: Copy Segments

First the EBI user will need to copy the appropriate segment.  In this example, the EBI user will be copying the N9 segment and creating it before the first REF segment in Area 1.


First step is to copy the Segment Group for N9.

STEP 2 :: Paste Group Segment

Next paste the Segment Group in Area 1 and move it before the REF segment.

Now make sure all the Properties and Constraints are the same as the original copy.

STEP 3 :: Copy Individual Segments

The EBI user then needs to copy the N9 segment and the related elements one by one from inside of the original and place them inside the newly created N9 segment group.

Once complete save the schema and refresh the schema in any rulesets it is being used in.
