While creating EDI Schemas, some record definitions may be common across schemas. You can create and define the record definitions that are commonly used in EDI schemas in an EDI Data Dictionary. Thus, while creating an EDI Schema, you can select the EDI Data Dictionary and display the required records.

You can create a data dictionary by uploading a zip file. You need to contact Adeptia Support Team to receive a zip file for a specific EDI version. Adeptia provides a default data dictionary for X12 004010.

This page list the steps to create an EDI data dictionary. Following steps can be followed to create a data dictionary for all other EDI formats - HL7, EDIFACT, and X12.
