Error description

  • Using WDI 3.3 SFP7 (03/16/12 build), running an EDI to EDI
    Transform of X12 850 data with Functional Acknowledgements on,
    part of the input data is not found in the FA output.
    Specifically - 348300.0000  in the input data
    ( CTT*22*348300.000000! )
    is not showing up in the FA data, but should be displayed as
    A1*850**348300.00000*L!
    but is displayed in the FA outfile as
    A1*850***L! .
    
    Just verified that the problem existed with SFP6 as well.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Bad input data element is not showing up in the DT
    functional acknowledgement segment.
    

Problem conclusion

  • PTR P8010032 added logic to validate data using
    ALPHANUM prior to placing the data in the FA segment.
    Only data that passed the ALPHANUM validation was
    written to the FA file. In this testcase, the data
    contained a period (.) and a period was not in
    ALPHANUM, so the validation failed, and the data
    element was not placed in the FA segment.
    The DT validation program will be changed to filter
    out real-number characters (plus sign, minus sign,
    period, and comma) prior to the ALPHANUM validation.
    By the way, the reason that the testcase FA
    segment contains "123400.00000" rather than the full
    input data "123400.000000" is two-fold. One, the A103
    element is defined to have a maximum length of 12.
    And two, the mapping to A103 uses the SubString
    function with length 12.
