Tips for Copying an EDI Map

The idea that a shortcut saves time is not always accurate.

Creating an EDI map from scratch can be time-consuming, but does copying a map really save time? Always use caution and follow the tips below:

• Always rename a map before saving changes to prevent over writing a production map.

• Use the Map preview report to look for all variables and nested maps that may not be obvious.

• Review all Text fields and Qualifiers – these are often custom fields.

• Check for SQL statements
