Jobisez created another translation tool. This new tool converts an EDI 816 to CSV file. The Organization Relationship transaction set is sent by the retailers, and it contains store location information.
The EDI 816 typically contains Store Name, Duns or GLN number, Address, City, State Zip and Country. It may also contain Contact Name, Phone, Fax and Email Address. As well as Effective, Opening and Closing Dates of that Store.
If you do not have a Jobisez account, you can create an account for free. Then visit the 816 Conversion page. If you are already signed onto Jobisez, you can "Browse" for an EDI 816 transaction set on your computer and create an Excel file by clicking "Create CSV". Then wait a couple of moments and your initial and translated files will be emailed to you. Upon the receipt of the email, you can then open the CSV file attachment using Excel. Within Excel you can then analyze the Organization Relationships data using the Excel tools you are already familiar with. Please verify that the data generated is correct. (Currently only works with one 'ISA' interchange. The EDI data cannot be more than 250 KCs.)
