We have a situation where the EDI document is coming from mainframe into IS running on Windows 2000. We notice the entire document is coming in with a fixed length of 80 characters. Is it due to EBCDIC to ASCII translation. Anyway, as a result, te ISA segment is truncated after 80 chars and the remaining part comes in a new line as shown below.
ISA00 00 ZZMMS00000012345 140014567313 030417153
This causes the tn.receive service to crash as it doesnt recognize the incoming document. I think it is due to incomplete ISA record with EOL character. Is there any quick solution to get over this problem. If we can fix the problem in the mainframe, it will be good. Or should we introduce any content handlers to solve these problems.
Does anyone work with EDI files coming from mainframe. If so, how did u handle these.
Thanks in advance
