EXTOL Integrator External File Lookup (EFL)

EXTOL Integrator External File Lookup (EFL)


EXTOL EDI Integrator has the ability to lookup data outside of the EDI data we received (inbound) or outside our EXTOL Fileset (outbound):
Below are the types of External File lookups:

  • Maintainable: This is where we can update a file to maintain inbound/outbound values. A good example is where we want to collect unique values, ie. inbound EDI PO # or outbound EDI invoice #. This files can also be used to just hold data for the current transaction.
  • Maintain with rollback: This is would be the Physical/Logical File that we update to reflect a transaction has been processed. If there is an error, the update will be reversed.
  • Normal Lookup: Normal External File Lookup in EXTOL. No error will occur if data is not found.
  • Required lookup: Normal External File Lookup in EXTOL. A forced EXTOL generation/translation error will occur if data is not found.
