Sometimes we need to force a translation error in an EXTOL Integrator EDI map. By using a formula we can easily force a translation error without any CL or RPG coding
Below is an example where we have an inbound map where we use the EFL process to retrieve a customer number. If the customer is null, then we force a translation error via CREATEERR EXTOL formula.
The CREATEERR formula above is a TYPE: V(alue) and we use special code of error of A = B.
Above are the parameters for the CREATEERR formula. We are indicating if field WWAN8 is null then force an error.
In a later example we will show how we can force an error and then populate the MSGQ with the error.
