Hi Cheng ,

Usually, the Header of ANSI X12 is ISA segment (Interchange Header ) which usually has information like sender id, receiver id with some other info. And Trailer IEA Segment ( Interchange Trailer) which has info such as control number and number of functional groups in that file.

You can check below few links for ANSI X12 description :

Hi handcc,

Is the SAP PI server having b2b cockpit.

Please kindly take help of BASIS team to install the B2B cockpit first as part of b2b add-on.

This beautiful blog by dsannen will help you.

After B2b cockpit installation is done you need to use is to find exact XSD structure and adapter module to be used to convert EDIFACT messages to XML or vice versa.

Details of step can be found here in this blog.
