Liquid XML Studio 2019
Syntax (EDI Wizard)

The default terminators and separators will be selected based on the standard selected on the previous page.

These are common default values, however the files you need to write may use different values and so you should change these values as appropriate.

These values are set when you first run the Wizard, however you can change them inside the Data Mapper by selecting the Component and selecting Properties from the right click menu.

Write End of Line

When checked, each segment is written to a new line.

If it is not checked, the entire EDI document is written onto a single line.

Write Missing Trailing Components

When checked, separators are added for all empty components within an element. 

If it is not checked, then trailing empty components are omitted.

Write Missing Trailing Elements

When checked, empty fields and separators are added for all empty Elements within a segment.

If it is not checked, then trailing empty elements are omitted.

Pad Fields to Minimum Length (0s and spaces)

When checked, all fields (Elements and Components) are padded to the Minimum Length specified in the standard. Text fields are right padded with spaces, and numeric fields are left padded with zeros.

If it is not checked, then the fields are written using the specified values and any padding should be done using components within the Data Mapper transform before connecting to the EDI Target Component.

Pad Empty Fields to Minimum Length

When checked, all empty fields (Elements and Components) are padded to the Minimum Length specified in the standard using spaces.

If it is not checked, then the fields are written with empty values and any padding should be done using components within the Data Mapper transform before connecting to the EDI Target Component.

Truncate Fields to Minimum Length (0s and spaces)

When checked, all fields (Elements and Components) are truncated by removing zeros and spaces to the Minimum Length specified in the standard. Text fields have trailing spaces truncated from the right, and numeric fields have leading zeros truncated from the left.

If it is not checked, then the fields are written using the specified values and any truncating should be done using components within the Data Mapper transform before connecting to the EDI Target Component.

Truncate Fields to Maximum Length

When checked, all fields (Elements and Components) are truncated to the Maximum Length specified in the standard. Text fields are truncated from the right, and numeric fields are truncated from the left.

If it is not checked, then the fields are written using the specified values and any truncating should be done using components within the Data Mapper transform before connecting to the EDI Target Component.

Caution, truncating values may lead to loss of data.
