We are currently using webMethods 6.5. Until now we have only been on the receiving end of 850 documents. We are now trying to send 850s. When I test the mapping of a document, the PO102 segment (X12 4010 850) is converted from 20 to 2E1 (and 2 becomes 2E0, etc.).
In developer I took a look at WmEDIforTN:EDIFF:X12:V4010:T850 and noticed that the built-in flow service formatDecimal is being used (I assume this is AFTER my mapping, because when i trace it, it is not 2E1, but in TN Console it is).
Is there something I am doing wrong that is causing it to convert to scientific notation (I have trimmed the field before mapping it…I can’t think of anything else)
I tested the formatDecimal myself in a test flow service and it did NOT do this…Can I somehow change the parameters for this particular mapping I’m working on?
If I go to the Dictionary under WmEDIforTN:EDIFF:X12:V4010 (field definition 330) I can remove the formatDecimal. Will this affect any incoming 850 documents? Or is this only for outgoing documents?
