Can the option to suppress the TAXCON message be made at the Trading Partnership record level instead of at the lftran translation level? (SCI33714)
When using EDIFACT standards and translating outbound INVOIC messages, a TAXCON message is automatically created at the end of one or more INVOIC messages. The lftran option X can be used to prevent the automatic creation of the EDIFACT TAXCON message.
The option to suppress the TAXCON message cannot be set at the Trading Partnership; however, there are other methods to set the option.
If running translation manually from the GUI, click the 'Translation Options' button and select the option "Prevents automatic creation of TAXCON info."
If running translation with a script, modify the script to include lftran command line option X along with the -o and any other needed translation parameters. Two separate translation scripts will be required: one for partners where TAXCON is needed and one for partners where TAXCON is NOT needed.
If using Data Managers (DMs) or Agents, have either separate (Process Control Manager) PCM flows: one for Trading Partners (TPs) that need the -X (prevent automatic creation of the EDIFACT TAXCON message) option, another for those that do not need the -X option. Or, if EC Workbench (ECWB) is used, then have two Translation Type DMs, one with the -X and one without the -X, and the upstream Inbound Type or Application Type DM would be configured to route TP to the correct Translation DM, based on Trading Partner Code (TPCODE). This could be done with two patterns, melding the corresponding TPs to the correct Pattern or manually add them through the DM configuration interface.
