EDI 810 Invoice to Excel

View an incoming 810 Invoice in a Microsoft Excel sheet.

Download Flow

The EDI 810 Invoice to Excel sample flow has pre-configured connectors for translating, mapping and visualizing the EDI 810 Invoice transaction set in Microsoft Excel.

The following connectors make up the core elements of the flow:

  • X12 Connector: Translates transaction sets between EDI and XML.
  • XML Map Connector: Transforms data from one XML format to another, providing easy backend compatibility.
  • Excel Connector: Uses preconfigured templates to generate Excel sheets out of XML files.

These connectors are configured to automatically move files from one connector to the next until the incoming EDI 810 Invoice files are transformed and inserted into Excel. You can modify the automation settings for each connector in its Automation tab, or you can manually process each step in the workflow using the Send button in the connector's Input tab.

If you would like to use this sample flow in your workspace, please follow these instructions:

Importing Workspace

Create Workspace

First, navigate to the Flows tab and click on the cogwheel icon in the top right corner. Choose the Create Workspace option to create a new Workspace for this sample flow.

Import Workspace

Then, from the same cogwheel dropdown, click Import Workspace. In the resulting dialog, choose the downloaded sample flow edi810toexcel.arcflow to import the relevant connectors and settings. You can choose to import the flow into any Workspace you like, but we recommend using separate Workspaces for distinct workflows.

Once you have successfully imported the sample flow, you can begin configuring the connectors to best suit your specific use case.

Excel Connector

Check The Excel Template

Navigate to the Settings tab of the Excel Connector. Check that the Template File field has an Excel sheet selected - this should be prepopulated with the template included in the sample flow.

X12 Connectors

Review Interchange Settings for Incoming Documents

Navigate to the Settings tab of the X12 Connector. Review the Interchange Settings and ensure that the following segments contain the correct information:

  1. ISA05 - Sender ID Qualifier
  2. ISA06 - Sender Identifier
  3. ISA07 - Receiver ID Qualifier
  4. ISA08 - Receiver Identifier

Review the Functional Group Settings for Outgoing Documents

Ensure the following segments contain the correct information:

  1. GS02 - Sender Identifier
  2. GS03 - Receiver Identifier

Since incoming documents are received by you, the value AMAZONDS is pre configured as the Sender Identifier, and VENDOR as the Receiver Identifier.

The project comes with a sample EDI 810 Invoice file, built in templates for Excel, and completely configued XML Map connector that will tranform the XML structure of EDI files into simple human readable XML. If you send this sample file from the pre-configured X12 connector, you can find the EDI 810 Invoice file in XLSX format in the Output tab of the Excel connector. You can click on the file to download it and visualize the EDI 810 Invoice data in Excel form.

Once you configure the Excel and X12 Connectors, the sample flow is ready for use!
