Special character in EDI..

Hi

I just confused with the special character in the EDI , i mean i am not able to figure out where does the special character comes form,

For example my edi file looks like:

SA00 00 ZZXXXXX ZZXXXXXXX
0810251936U002002843625190T:GSSHXXXXXXXXXXXX200810251936283362519X004010

I just want to know how does a character before GS segment comes from, Our partner has problem in processing the edi files with this type of character.

Could any one let me know about this…Is there any property defing this or it is defined in TPA…???

In the TPA do you have any subfield or release char in place?

May be you need to step thru it when you create addICEnvelope service and check whats going on then only we can know the root cause.

Do you see this Char after receiving it in TN?

the END of ISA should have :
ISA16 (Component separator)
Select the type of the Component element separator (either Char or Hex), and then enter a single character for the separator. This character separates the lowest level of data within an EDI message segment: simple data elements within composite data elements.

The default value is : if the type is Char, and 3a if the type is Hex.

This element is limited to the values in the ASCII character set. This property is not validated against the X12 character set defined in the General page.
Segment terminator
Select the type of the Segment terminator (either Char or Hex), and then enter a single character for the separator. This character indicates the end of an EDI segment. In an X12 interchange, the segment terminator is defined as the character in the last character position of the ISA segment.

The default value is ~ if the type is Char, and 7e if the type is Hex.

You can leave this data element empty, but if you do, you need to designate a suffix.

This element is limited to the values in the ASCII character set. This property is not validated against the X12 character set defined in the General page.

I guess the “Segment terminator” is invisible

Please check your TPA or delimiters/subfield value goes to ISA16 what you are sending before it routes to TN as stated above:
