NO-BREAK spaces (hex A0) in EDI files? RRS feed

  • Question

  • A vendor is sending us EDI 810 documents that occasionally contain NO-BREAK spaces (hex A0) instead of normal spaces. The EDIReceive pipeline always fails saying that it found an "Invalid character in data element".


    No matter what encoding I set in the receive pipeline and party, I'm always getting this error when no-break spaces are present.


    What is the best way to deal with such files? Thanks
