In EXTOL Business Integrator it is not easy to automatically extract inbound x12/EDIFACT data where all the header/footer segments are intact, ie, ISA/GS and IEA/GE records. The same also goes for EDIFACT segments: UNB/UNH and UNT/UNZ.
The only real way to scan and extract EDI data (x12/EDIFACT) would be to perform the function in Receive.edi Business Process Script.
In our example below, we copied the Receive EDI Business Process Script and added 3 new tasks
- Convert Storage ID to String
- String - Contains
- Custom Business Process Script - Performs special process if certain condition is met
In another post, we look at How EXTOL Business Integrator Processes inbound EDI
