I am having difficulties with using the ..Strip() function in my DTL to strip the slash ( / ) from the phone number portion of an x12 834.  There are very few records that have the slash in the phone number, so I am trying to filter out any characters other than numbers so that all phone numbers are formatted 1112223333.

Here is the code portion of the strip:

       Set           HomePhone             ..Strip(source.{loop2000(k1).loop2100A.PER:CommunicationNumber},"*AW","-()/").

I am then checking the length of HomePhone.

I am experiencing a problem with an EDI process that uses a SQL Batch Service to connect to our DEV environment.  However, when we point the EDI service to our TEST server, it errors out.

I have checked every single property on our TEST and DEV servers as well as the properties on the associated tables.  They are identical.  Nothing has changed in the SQL either.

x12 substring manipulation

How do I manipulate a string in Ensemble DTL (X12 document) to extract a string starting from the right, or end, of the string?

I need to have 10 digit phone numbers, however some of the source data records include the "1" for the long distance dialing and I need to exclude this.

I have tried using Right(), SubStr(), and even SubString(string,*,-10) but it will not compile.

I find it hard to believe that Ensemble does not have the ability to read a string from the right. 

Thank you for any assistance.

Create multiple dependent Tasks

Is it possible to create a task that will initiate a Business Service that is dependent on the completion of a separate EDI data process?

I have a complex data flow with multiple EDI processes where one process must run and produce one or more files that get deposited in the source folder for the next EDI process.  The entire process is currently set up where 2 of the EDI processes execute at a specific time.  The problem with that is when a network or server interruption occurs at the time they are supposed to start, it causes a complete failure of the entire process.

I am having an issue with the output file format on a production where quotes (" ") around column values are being removed from the imported file.  For example, my input file is a csv formatted as such: "123", " ", "ABC".  The output file format that is being generated produces: 123, , ABC.  I need the output file to retain the quotes around the data.

Is this something that can be corrected in the record map?  Or is it an issue elsewhere?
