    Why is the notes field sometimes created properly in EDI invoices loaded from Swets, in other examples it’s missing?


    For the examples where the notes field is not created there is a colon (:) in the data element (see 81:5):

    The colon is a separator in EDI data, description can be found in attached document.

    With a preceding "?" the separator will be reset or use another character (e.g. comma) instead.
