Hi Gurus,

The overview of my problem is that my billing text is being passed to EDI with extra characters in the text string.

The details: Purchase Order text of the Purchase InfoRecord (PIR) is pulled into the PO during PO creation. The vendor is setup to create an EDI output type which will generate an output file used by (some system) to create the actual EDI records.

For example when we send something like this:

John Doe

No company Name

123 Strange Str.

Fake Town.


The outputs comes out like this

<b>BK10035-40l1</b>John Doe, No Company<b>22</b>Name, 123 Strange Str. <b>57</b>Fake Town..

Those characters in <b>BOLD</b> were the extra ones added. How can i stop this from happening in the EDI output.
