Creating a Purchase Order spec using Stedi GuidesNovember 23, 2022


This video shows how to transcribe an X12 EDI implementation guide from a PDF into a machine-readable EDI specification, using Stedi Guides.

A Stedi guide turns EDI requirements into an artifact for programmatic validation and translation. The guide starts with a standard baseline for the transaction set so that all common errors are automatically caught. The video shows how to further customize segments and elements by adding conditions, accepted values, variants and usage notes to match your, or your trading partners' specifications.

Once the guide is created, the video shows how to use the built-in EDI Inspector to validate and troubleshoot sample EDI file against the guide.
