    An EDI Invoice is not loading. What is the problem?

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    Is this EDI Invoice coded correctly? Is the "v.55" designation in the attached edi invoice correct? Can you tell us what it should be so we can relay the information to the vendor?

    It looks like the EDI segments are IMD+L+085+:::v.55'IMD+L+086+:::v.55. There are error messages from p_edi_10 indicating problems with these segments.

    The volume does not appear to be displaying in the client line items. The edi invoices from another vendor have a very different format, they seem to be handling volumes in PIA+5S and PIA+5E in addition to FTX+LIN++REN and FTX+LIN++FF segments that place the volume information in the Line Item Note field.

    The problem is with the BGM segment. This is meant to be a Serial Invoice. The two offending segments:


    are only valid for Serial Invoice. However, the Beginning of Message section (BGM) isn't coded as a Serial Invoice. To be a valid Serial Invoice, it needs to have the JINV indicator in the BGM segment. The absence of the JINV indicator indicates that this is a Book Invoice, and these IMD segments are invalid for a Book Invoice.

    The vendor sending this Invoice will have to correct the BGM segment.
