    Problems with sending EDI orders

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 21

    Problem Symptoms:
    Following problems appear when ordering via EDI when sending the EDI file:

    1) The ISBN is not transferred, Instead the ISBN is by default preceded by a useless character and therefore can not be translated.

    Example of wrong ISBN in EDI sent file:
    <z68-isbn>Y9780199236107 (pbk.</z68-isbn>

    2) Message "Failed to read reply" when sending an order. After clicking "Ok" it seems as if the order was sent but it does not reach the vendor.


    This problem is solved with rep_change 2558 (Aleph 21) and 3838 (Aleph 20):

    Description: ACQ - in certain circumstances, the system failed to send an EDI order.

    Solution: This has been corrected
