MultiRecord Flat Files
Using Flat Files in Babelway and Building MultiRecord Definitions
Flat files are very common in B2B integration, but using them in Babelway requires a bit more work than your standard file format. The reason being is that there isn't anything inherent in the file itself that identifies the purpose of each data element. Thus, you must build what is called a MultiRecord Definition file to interpret the data. This is usually off a specification file and can allow you to use flat files in Babelway.
This course will teach you to understand flat files and their specification documents. We'll also look through building our own MRD and uploading that into babelway. We'll also cover some tips to work with these files and building MRDs as efficient as possible.
I've had a career in EDI and iPaaS platforms with notable focus on supply chain and supply chain finance. Over the years I've worked with almost every Protocol and File Format in the B2B Integration landscape. I've personally built hundreds of channels within Babelway and oversaw an entire integration team. I hope to share all the knowledge I've learned after 500+ channels with the Babelway community and I have a passion for helping others become experts in everything they do.
I'm based in Salt Lake City, Utah. I love to ski, hike, camp, ride, and eat.
