BizTalk EDI X12 850 Purchase Order schema is not available for version 002003


  • Hi All

    We have requirement to process the X12 file for 002003 version received from partner for purchase order. WE have  checked and partner is not ready to migrate the edi version at thir end.

    I was trying to modify the closest schema of X12_00204_850, to make it compatible with 002003 version. But whenever i change the root node, it behaves abnormally, after save all the elements gets created parallel to root node. Please suggest any option to process the x12 file with old version 002003.

  • What exactly do you mean "all the elements gets created parallel to root node".

    What you're doing, modifying the closest version, is the correct way.  Modifying the EDI Schemas isn't anything special.  Are there really many differences between the 203 and 204 versions?  X12 tends to change very slowly.

  • I fetched the old BizTalk 2004 ISO image but to no avail
    Earliest version is X12 2040 850

    You are quite sure the changes from 2040 to 2030 is done throughtout the schema file?
    Use a different editor than VS - eg Code Writer (Windows 10 applet)
