The UN/EDIFACT wizard helps you create a schema to be used for the tExtractEDIField component to read and extract data from UN/EDIFACT message files.

Defining the general properties

In this step, define the general properties of the schema metadata such as the Name, Purpose and Description.

  1. In the Repository tree view, right-click the UN/EDIFACT tree node, and select Create EDI from the pop-up menu.

  2. Enter the general properties of the schema, such as its Name and Description. The Name field must be filled.

  3. Click Next to set the UN/EDIFACT standard and release.

Setting the UN/EDIFACT standard and release

In this step, define the UN/EDIFACT standard and release version.

  1. To search your UN/EDIFACT standard quickly, enter the full or partial name of the UN/EDIFACT standard in the Name Filter field, for example, enter inv for INVOIC.

  2. In the UN/EDIFACT standards list, expand the standard node of your choice, and select the release version of the UN/EDIFACT messages you want to read through this metadata.

  3. Click Next to proceed with schema mapping.

Mapping the schema

The schema mapping window opens:

  1. From the left-hand panel, select the EDIFACT message fields that you to include in your schema, and drop them to the Description of the Schema table in the right-hand Schema panel.

  2. If needed, select any field in the Description of the Schema table, and move it up or down or rename it.

  3. Click Next to finalize the schema definition.

Finalizing the end schema

This step shows the final schema generated.

  2. Click Finish to finalize the creation of your UN/EDIFACT metadata.

    The metadata created is added under the UN/EDIFACT node in the Repository tree.
