Once validations have been applied to an x9 file, the errors tab provides a summarized list of all identified errors. The list is summarized by error description. Individual entries can then be expanded or collapsed, allowing you to focus on specific error conditions.
You can expand or collapse individual entries within the list. The expanded entry provides more detailed information about the error condition, including the x9 record number, the x9 field that is associated with the error, the x9 field name, position, length, value, primary edit rule, and various other informational fields. Supplemental information is provided when available that gives additional insight into exactly what is behind the error. For example, if a trailer record total is incorrect, the supplemental information will tell you what the expected value was versus the data that is actually present.
From the errors tab, you can use the “view” button to drill down and launch any listed error. This is a powerful capability that allows you to easily jump directly into the x9 file and focus on any given error.
