Running the Import Program for Inbound Transactions

The Oracle EDI Gateway reads the EDI translator-provided data file and writes the data into the application open interface tables. The Application Open Interface validates the data and populates the application database tables. Data that does not pass validation is marked for corrective action.

Validation is based on the same business rules applied to the data if it were entered manually.

Validation is performed at the transaction, header, and detail levels. Only valid data is imported into the application database.

If no value is found for a required data field, the application open interface derives default values based on standard value rule sets for required fields.

Refer to the Oracle Manufacturing Implementation Manual, Release 10 and the Oracle Financials Open Interface Manual, Release 10 for descriptions of each Application Open Interface and their corresponding error detection and recovery processes. Included in the descriptions are standard value rule sets.

The import program performs the following functions common to all inbound EDI transactions. The EDI Gateway:
