You need to create an ISA Outbound Envelope. This is used to define the values and control number of ISA header, which is generated in the outbound file. It can be created either from the Manage Trading Partner page or from the Create Outbound Relationship page.
Steps to create ISA Outbound Envelope:
- On the Adeptia Suite homepage, click the Develop tab.
- Go to Solutions > B2B > Relationships. This action will display you the Manage Trading Partner screen.
- Select the EDI Trading Partner activity for which you want to define the ISA Outbound envelope and click ISAOutboundEnvelope tab. This action will display you the Manage ISA Outbound Envelope screen.
Click on the Create New link. This action will display you the Create ISA Outbound Envelope screen.
The following figure displays a sample ISA Outbound Envelope screen (see Figure 36).
