  • Hi,
        There is not much difference in standered for EDIFACT and X12 standards.
    You can see the following analogy:
    ISA -> UNB
    GS  -> UNG
    ST  -> UNH

    There is a extra segment in EDIFACT for delimiters that is UNA. In X12 Delimiters position is fixed so it does not need UNA kind of segment.

    With the Biztalk EDIFACT schemas are shipped you can use them(It's in directory XSDSchema in Biztalk Installation folder) . You can deploy these schemas and can use this schema to generate input instance as well . And you can configure Edifact party also in the same analogous manner as X12.
    For generating instance you can go thru:
