Could the be doing something really strange like add the record before 
they have figured out what the line number is going to be and then 
going back and updating the detail line number?

This is not how I (or probably anybody on the list) would go about 
doing something, but if this is really PC or mainframe 
software...well, sometimes they do some strange things.

Also, what happens if you remove the unique key words from the 
logical?  Does everything work?

Hello.

We just started setting up Trusted Link to receive an 850.  We built
logicals over the files that the data is mapped to.  They were 
uniquely
keyed (transaction number for header, transaction number, detail line 
number
for detail).

When trying to map, the mapping program (Harbinger's) bombed (hard 
crash,
amazing for a purchased product) with a duplicate key error on one of 
their
files (not our files).

We remove our logicals, and the program does not bomb when mapping.

After looking at the data, there is no data that would have caused a
duplicate key error from our logicals.  Then again, it is their file 
that it
is getting the duplicate key error on.

Can you not have ANY logicals on the files that are used to map data 
from
EDI?  Their tech support seemed to have think so, but I think it was 
just to
get off us the phone.  Not to mention we told them what we did to make 
it
work.  We're still waiting for a call from a developer to see why we 
can't
have logicals on our files for mapping.

Anyone?
