Config / Mappings / The NAV Converter

The NAV Converter

Anveo EDI Connect offers converters to handle the business process. The mappings can be used to check data and to transfer data between tables in the same database. This converter is used to add all processing logic to the EDI workflow.

Each license of Anveo EDI Connect contains an unlimited number of business process mappings.

We highly recommend to split the processing logic into multiple steps, like described in the section modelling mapping workflows.


We provide a few templates for NAV mappings, which you can find by starting the mapping assistant. Please keep in mind that these are templates that need to be modified according to the target process.


We assume that you know how to work with mapping lines and how to access the EDI properties.

The NAV converter does not add a lot of converter specific EDI properties to the mapping. Most properties are already discussed before. In this converter there is one special line type. Mapping lines where the property Type is set to Data behave differently than in other mappings.

EDI Mapping Lines With Type Set to Data

These lines have a SourceExpr and DestExpr and are used to transfer data from one table to another or to execute functions or assign constant values to table fields. These lines read the SourceExpr and write the result to the DestExpr. We have a separate section, where we describe those properties.

The mapping lines where the property Type of the property DestExpr is set to Filter will create an error, if the SourceExpr does not match the specified filter. In this converter you cannot use filters for conditional execution of mapping parts.

In this converter the DestExpr also has an additional property, which allows you to do simple calculations directly in the mapping.


Assignment Mode

This property is only available if the DestType is set to Field. You can use Anveo EDI Connect to calculate values. Setting this property to another value than Assign will use the existing value in the table instance and add/substract/multiply or divide it with the source value of this line.

The possible values are:


Override the existing value in the table field.


Add the value to the current value of the field in the table instance.


Subtract the value from the current value of the field in the table instance.


Multiply the value with the current value of the field in the table instance.


Divide the the current value of the field in the table instance with the source value.
