I work with an organization that has the "opportunity" to accept ANSI-837 5010 data from a variety of sources. Working with OopFactory X12 and with liberal help from Dannie, we have written a routine that imports these types of files into an
Oracle DB for diagnostic analysis.
One of the issues that we have is that the folks sending the data have no financial incentive to provide data in a standard format. We end up receiving data that cannot be processed by the program we have written.
The only recourse we have is to tell the sender that it is invalid. At present we do not have an industry accepted tool that will validate the data.
Does anybody know if such a tool exists,? Affordable? If so pointing me where I might find it would be greatly appreciated.
