    ACQ/EDI:free text segment adds brackets, 1: to Notes tab

    Bug Report for Issue 16384-13473

    Module(s): Acquisitions
    Server platform(s) affected: Solaris/all
    PC OS (if applicable): n/a
    Browser & version (if applicable): n/a
    Release(s): reported in 7.2.1; replicated in 7.2.3

    Expected results: An FTX segment in an EDI invoice header would load that free text as is into the Notes tab on the invoice.

    Actual results: If an EDI invoice header contains an FTX segment with free text, the free text is added to the Notes tab on the invoice; however, it’s surrounded by [1: ].

    Workflow implications: Operators have to edit the notes field to remove the extraneous text.

    Replication steps:
    Put an EDI invoice with an FTX segment (FTX+INV+++Your free text’) in /m1/voyager/yyydb/edi/incoming.
    In Acquisitions>EDI>Process EDI Messages>Incoming, click Receive a File and select your file.
    Highlight your message and click Load.
    Click in the Message Type field to get the ellipsis button, then click it to bring up the Invoice.
    Go to the Notes tab on the Invoice – you’ll see [1: Your free text] instead of just Your free text.

    Other information: The same thing happens if you move the segment into one of the individual line items – the text then shows in the individual line item instead, but it still has the brackets and 1:.
