Transmission and file naming

EDI format: OpenTrans (XML)

Namespace handling

You can start making the necessary changes and prepare the EDI interface on your side, according to the documentation and generic sample files.
Your responsible EDI Manager will provide you the specific input test orders (e.g. ORDP).
When preparing your response files, please make sure to validate the files against the provided XSD schema before uploading them.
You may use any XSD validator, however we recommend using the latest Notepad++ version: https://notepad-plus-plus.org/downloads/

  1. When using Notepad++ make sure to unzip the zip archive. Extract and save both containing XSD files.

  2. Run notepad++.exe and open your response file.

  3. Go to “Plugins” → “Plugins Admin” → select “XML Tools” → “Install”:

  4. “Validate now” with Ctrl+Alt+Shift+M and select the opentrans xsd file:

    Namespace URI: http://www.opentrans.org/XMLSchema/2.1

  5. Any errors will be highlighted and should be fixed. You may use the table element descriptions and sample files to resolve possible differences and errors.

  6. At the end, the validation should detect no errors:

If there are any questions, which are not answered in the documentation, please contact your EDI Manager.
As soon as you uploaded the corresponding test order response files, please inform your EDI Manager.
The files will then be checked and feedback will be provided as soon as possible.

Diagrams 1 and 2 show the entire process flow.

  • The basic documents form the basis of automated order managment and should always be implemented as a first step.

  • The optional documents can be automated as required or processed manually via WebEDI (CMI).
