Issue

Trading Partner shapes do not read correctly source data if the segment terminators are anything but the standard, such as horizontal ellipses, (...), or [\u2026]. It is not always possible to massage and pre-process the source data due to the volume of messages, possible concurrency, multiple files coming in from multiple vendors, etc.

 

Solution

  1. On myCompany Trading Partner, on the Communication tab, under Data Processing Options, choose Search/Replace:
    1. Search: [\u2026]
    2. Replace: ~  (tilde)
  2. On the outbound to the customer, on the Communication tab, under Data Processing Options, choose Search/Replace:
    1. Search: ~  (tilde)
    2. Replace: [\u2026]
