Create Business Documents from scratch

To create a new Business Document:

  1. From the main menu, select File > New > Business Document.
  2. Alternatively, you can right-click in the Project Explorer and select New > Business Document.
  3. A wizard appears to help you create a new Business Document.
  4. Specify where you want to save the Business Document. To select a path either use the directory tree or enter the path directly.
  5. Enter a File name for your Business Document. It must be a valid Business Document name. That means you cannot use special or space characters.
  6. Click Next.
  7. Select the Business Document Type you require. Click Finish.

Mapping Services creates the Business Document in the selected project’s Business Document folder and an entry in the Project Explorer pane tree structure. The Business Document opens on a new tab in the Business Document editor.

You can identify the Business Document type (EDIFACT, X12, Flat File, and so on) in the Navigation view as shown in the following graphic.
