An important feature of the Hex Viewer is that it is automatically invoked when a structurally flawed x9 file is opened. The purpose of this interface is to provide as much information as possible when flawed files are opened. These are always difficult situations and can easily turn into complex discussions. Most x9 tools provide little to no information on flawed files. However, X9Assist is designed to intercept these parsing errors and give you as much insight (as possible) as to where the error exists.
The Hex Mode within the Item Viewer will then be launched to display the actual data at the break point (in hex format), which will provide more detailed information regarding x9 file content.
When a structurally flawed file is open, X9Assist will:
- Provide a pop-up message with information on where the problem was encountered.
- Will then position you within the Hex Viewer at the point of the parsing failure.
The pop-up message contains the following information:
- The number of records parsed up to the break point.
- The percentage of overall x9 data that was successfully parsed.
