In working on a side project just started, I was faced with a new acronym. EDI. Electronic Data interchange. A ‘secret’ way of saying ‘we conform to a file format of “x”. I have since found that there are two BIG versions. The fact that there are ‘versions’ to me means the entire thing is STUPID and FUBAR, because if there are versions, there is no STANDARD! AHHHH! But, the ones I need to be concerned with are UN/EDIFACT and X12. I want to find the PHD IT person who did this and step on their piggy toe hard while wearing skates. Why can’t you just send a damn file with a delimiter? Really….
