How is GENTRAN used in Electronic data interchange EDI in SAP?


Let me give you a basic info about electronic data interchange, it is used to exchange data (usually structured) between firms.

Speaking about GENTRAN, it is one of the available EDI tools which can help you parse data in most of the common formats available. If you want to change the format of data from one to another, GENTRAN can do it for you too.

Coming up to the most exciting part of it, it provides a drag and drop interface to you where you can program.

Usually, when you need to convert a document from one format to another, you need to map the fields (properties) in one document format to fields in another document format. For e.g. If I need to convert from AS2 format to XML, then mapping would require mapping the fields from AS2 format to XML format.
