this document may assist you as a work around The purpose of this document is to provide a guideline on the custom code you need to do the following: • • . The sample code may need adjustments. There are plans to enhance the Oracle application to allow you to do both. Please send your recommendation for improving this document and sample code to Bonnie.Williams@Oracle. The table names and columns may have changed across releases. Confirm in the base application manuals whether their procedures allow both the EDI transaction and the printing of the Documentation Changes The sample code in this document may not be exact. Reference Document Reference the Oracle R11i Oracle e-Commerce Gateway Implementation Manual for a list of data elements that are updated in the transactions in the base application tables when an EDI transaction is extracted. Process the EDI transaction through the EDI Gateway or e-Commerce Gateway. 05/02/2002 2:30 PM Page 3 .7 and R11.Overview Document Purpose Several Oracle transactions do not allow both the printing and creation of the outbound EDI transaction. AND Print the same document from the base application. They may have changed. Until that is available (date not determined). You need a work around until the base product can provide that. We would like to have sample code for each transaction for each release until the standard product can provide this feature. These are the fields that need to be reset by the process described below. Confirm that these are the same fields in R10.

This process will update key data elements in the base Application tables. 1. 05/02/2002 2:30 PM Page 4 . Run the Oracle EDI Gateway process first Running the EDI Gateway process first will assure that the interface file for the EDI transactions is created. Run the base Oracle application’s regular process to produce paper documents. 3. Given the transaction identifier (for example. the flags must be reset for the second process to be successful.. read the base Oracle application to reset the appropriate flags and codes that prevented the transaction from being processed again. 2. Run the Oracle EDI Gateway process first to extract transactions Reset the print flag in the base application (custom code) given the transactions just extracted Run the print document request. These transactions are found in the file just created by the EDI Gateway. Reset the print flag in the base application (Custom Code) Custom code is needed to read through control (0010) records to identify which transactions were extracted. Because the EDI Gateway and the base application share the same flags and indicators in the base application tables to prevent duplicate processing. 3. This file will provide the list of document/transactions extracted by the first process.Parallel Printing and EDI Transaction. Run the print document request. 2. Method 1 The following procedure will work for the following transactions that do not allow both printing of the document and the EDI transaction extraction: • • • • Outbound Invoice (INO) Outbound Purchase Order (POO) Outbound Purchase Order Change (POCO) Others to be determined These steps can be followed: 1. purchase order number).

A company used this for invoices. otherwise. the customer MUST then reinstate the INO process using the above navigation. Method 2 This is an alternative manual procedure that may be viable for some organizations.Parallel Printing and EDI Transaction. 05/02/2002 2:30 PM Page 8 . Navigation --> Trading Partner --> Query the Trading Partner --> Open the Trading Partner --> Select the Detail Alternate region --> Disable the Invoice Outbound reference by click on the Enable box. the EDI invoices will not be extracted when the Concurrent Manager Request is run again. You MUST REINSTATE the Trading Partner for the outbound invoice in the Gateway again. Upon completion. You may try it for other transactions. INVOICES: The solution requires the user to connect to the Application using the EDI Gateway responsibility. Save the transaction. Once connected follow the following navigation path. Once this is done the regular invoice process will print the document.
