Using IBM's Edit Word in EXTOL

Use Edit Word to modify pricing in outbound invoice


Scenario:

EXTOL EDI Integrator gives users the ability to use IBM's Edit Word. This functionality is helpful when we need to return a zero dollar detail line. The IT104 is a 'R' type; meaning it requires a decimal. If we move a '0' (zero) to the IT104 then no value will be sent in the element.


Set-up

In the set-up below in the details 2 screen of the outbound element we use the following set-up:
Field length/decimals: 17/4

  • Zero/Blank suppression: L
  • Edit Max Digits: 15
  • Edit DecPos: 4
  • Edit Word: ' 0 . '
