Electronic Data Interchange Implementation Guide


This section of the Implementation Guide consists of a glossary of terms which may be encountered during a discussion of EDI. There are many terms that are unique to EDI and many terms, familiar in other fields, that have adopted a new meaning within the context of EDI. EDI jargon borrows heavily from other computer- and communications-based disciplines.

Detailed Glossary information is available in PDF format.
