Has anyone used the EDIFACT standards to create/consume an EDI solution? 

I’d like to determine if I need a third party app to convert to something useful, or if I can write something which will work directly in Uniface (or as a COM/DLL plugin). 

If anyone has done similar, could you briefly say how difficult a task it was? 

Regards, 

Iain

Hi Iain

We did part of the TBG5 (finance) branch of EDIFACT.
As all characters in EDIFACT are (printable) ASCII, there is no need to use other languages then UnifAce 🙂
The major challenge in EDIFACT is to unterstand the logic behind it. Once you got it, it’s very easy to write code. Okay, you have to do some counters.

If you have any question …
(but it’s a long time ago when I did EDIFACT 🙂 )

Hi Iain

But you don’t need all of them 🙂

If you want to implement some finance transactions, two message are (almost) enough to initiate a money transfer

* PAYMUL (Multiple payment order message)
* DIRDEB (Direct debit message)

TBG5 defines the necessary messages:

This is the first segment, used in all messages:

BTW:
ISO 20022 does also define a lot of messages 🙂

Yeah, we’re looking at EBIS sales, despatch and invoicing, so different messages. 

As it happens both the third party and their message broker are being very uncommunicative about how we even get the files in the first place so I’m still waiting to see what they need.
