    Normally you will be having an XML schema which also can take multiple suppliers. If you have to create one file per supplier then you need to debatch based on the NADLoop1. Also it would require you to copy other details which would be required in the destination. This you can achieve by using orchestration and debatcing using Xpath.

  • Hi Kamlesh,

    The EDIFACT standard does support multiple Name and Address segments (NAD), which could all (theoretically) be a supplier (coded) name and addresses, however I'm not too sure why you would want to do this; an order is normally sent to a single supplier, unless you're trying to do a broadcast order of some type.

    Could you elaborate on what you are trying to achieve?

    Nick.

    Hi Nick,

     

    Thanks for your quick respose.

     

    Actually I am creating an application that converts edifact to an XML so if it supports mutliple supplier (seller) in one edifact, I need to create diffrent XML for each supplier. (Means for above example I need to create 3 xmls with same data for each supplier)

    Please provide your thoughts.

     

    Thanks,

    Kamlesh
