I think I’m relatively fluent in MS Access, SQL and data in general. I’m interested in learning EDI, specifically for Amazon.com. I’m totally lost in the EDI verbiage and syntax and need a kick in the right direction. I know what EDI is and does. We’ve been using 3rd party EDI providers for many years, but I want to handle Amazon.com on my own. We are a warehouse fulfillment supplier, not a drop shipping or FBA merchant. I communicate extensively with 3rd Party EDI providers with CSV files and some GUI. I landed here when Googlin’ for “learning EDI”.
So, moving along…
What is Software AG? Is this a software provider that has mapping software for EDI?
For those in a similar situation, what is the easiest and less expensive EDI mapping software?
As for the EDI process, I’m assuming I will be downloading an *.x12 file that is loaded into a mapping software that will in turn map the EDI fields to my database. Then, after whatever data manipulation I perform, my results are mapped back into an *.x12 file and uploaded to Amazon.com. Is this basically the process?
Is there a better forum or source to get started in EDI than here?
