File Specification - Handling Fixed-Width Files
(eiConsole II - Training & Interface)


This interface and related tutorials demonstrate the use of the File Specification Editor in Route configurations to convert between fixed-width formats and XML.

Core Concepts:

  • Routes
  • Formats
  • Transformers
  • Directory Listener
  • Directory Transport
  • eiConsole Testing Mode
  • Delimited and Fixed-Width File Transformer
  • Fixed-Width Formats
