EDI 101 Training EDI Helpful Links [Part 2]

As EDI grows as a way of conducting business, more and more people are entering the EDI field as a Coordinator, Mapper or Consultant.  Many of these people are new to EDI and are looking to learn the basics of EDI.

Last month we posted our first EDI Training blog posting that pointed out important EDI Blogs, User Groups and EDI News Forums.

This month we have extended to the EDI Training section by adding an EDI Helpful Links section.  This section came to us by reviewing other EDI Groups and we came up with an initial list of helpful links.

If you would like other links added to this page, leave a comment on this blog post and we will take them under consideration.

We will be adding more detail to the EDI 101 Training pages in the near future, so keep an eye on this blog for further updates.

Convert EDI 315 to Excel CSV File

In a continuing effort to make your EDI job easier, Jobisez LLC created another conversion tool.  As mentioned in our first EDI Online Tools posting, we will be adding new tools as time goes on.  In this case we have added a tool that converts an EDI 315 to an Excel CSV file.

Similar to the EDI 852 conversion tool, all you will need is a valid EDI 315 transaction.  Go to the EDI 315 Conversion page, "choose" the file, then click "Create CSV."  In a few moments, the text-box will contain the EDI 315 in raw form.  At this point, you can click "save as" and open the EDI 315 in Excel. When Excel (or your favorite spreadsheet application, you can massage the data in the tool you are already familiar with.)

Let us know what you think and how you think we should proceed.  Your input is valuable to us!

Improvements to the EDI 852 to Excel Tool

Jobisez understands the necessity of understanding the EDI 852 Product Activity (POS) document.  We have defined the importance of this document in two of our blogs, What is the EDI 852 and Indentifying Sales-Trends.

With this information, we created an Online Tool last year to create a CSV spreadsheet from an EDI 852 transaction.  This tool has been very popular and used quite often.

After careful analysis of the 852s being processed, we needed to add several more LIN qualifiers to the tool so it can be helpful to more companies.

With its new release today, the tool now looks for the following qualifiers in the LIN segment...
1.  UP - U.P.C. Consumer Package Code (1-5-5-1)
2.  UB - U.P.C. / EAN Case Code (2-5-5)
3.  ND - National Drug Code 
4.  UI - U.P.C. Consumer Package Code (1-5-5)
5.  UD - U.P.C. / EAN Consumer Package Code (2-5-5)
6.  IB - International Standard Book Number (ISBN)
7.  EN - European Article Number (EAN) (2-5-5-1)
8.  EO - GTIN-8
9.  UK - GTIN: U.P.C. / EAN Shipping Container Code (1-2-5-5-1)
10. VN - Vendor's (Seller's) Item Number
11. MG - Manufacturer's Part Number
12. VP - Vendor's (Seller's) Part Number
13. VC - Vendor's (Seller's) Catalog Number
14. VA - Vendor's Style Number
15. IN - Buyer's Item Number
16. PN - Company Part Number
17. BP -  Buyer's Part Number
18. PI - Purchaser's Item Code
19. CB - Buyer's Catalog Number
20. IT - Buyer's Style Number

Please feel free to post a comment on what other features you would like to see this tool do.  For instance, would you like the CTP values on the spreadsheet, or perhaps you would also like to see the Color and Size information too.
