Getting the Most out of EDI Complete – Options screen, Advanced tab

June 27, 2008

You can customize EDI Complete in a number of ways.

The Options screen can be found in the Tools menu. Let’s only look at some of the available settings in the Advanced tab for now.

This is where you activate such features as the parsing of Multi-Store Purchase orders (often called “SDQ” Pos), or enable the use of EDIFACT standards in addition to X12.

Additional settings often recommended to be checked are the “Default Outbound File Name To Blank When Adding Transaction Set Overrides To Trading Partners” and “Write Message to Errors.txt When New Trading Partner Is Automatically Added”. Fast notification of new trading partners will help you keep your setups streamlined.
