TX SAP JALE Adapter to allow a custom EDI_DC40 Control Record
"Error in ParseElement" occurs because only the standard 36 field / 524 character EDI_DC40 Control Record is supported by the TX SAP JALE Adapter. This is causing the interface which uses a custom Idoc control record more than the 540 character to fail with the Error in ParseElement message
What is your industry?
Energy & Utilities
How will this idea be used?
This will allow customers to continue using custom SAP idocs with the JALE adapter. In most of the cases it would not be possible for the SAP application to revert back to standard Idocs as there might be specific business cases to add custom fields to EDI_DC40 control record
