Writing/Developing EXTOL TPMC Exit Point Program

Writing/Developing your first EXTOL TPMC Exit Point Program

EXTOL EDI Integrator supplies various trading partner message class (TPMC) exit points. CLICK HERE to see examples of these programs. If these programs are not sufficient for your needs then we need to start thinking about developing a new EXTOL TPMC Exit Point.

Background of EXTOL Exit Point Program

In the example below we will call an exit point program each time an inbound 850 is received from Lowes. The program would be executed after the records are written out.

Description from EXTOL Help Documentation
EXTOL EDI Integrator (EEI) allows user exits to be specified at the trading partner message class level and triggered by each document at the occurrence of any or all of 11 different events. The records are specified as various combinations of trading partner, group code, message id and message class, with the special value of *all permitted in any combination of these four fields. This allows "exception-based" specifications of the actions to be performed.

Enter the following fields

  • Status: E
  • Operation: P
  • Error-Action: E

For programming examples, we recommend EXTSYS/QRPGSRC/DUMPEXIT. PGM: DUMPEXIT is the long parm list and supplies users with the most information needed.
All programming can begin on line 240. Below is the sample coding from PGM: DUMPEXIT

240.00      C           ICOUNT    IFLT 1
