Data element too long


This Error/Warning/Information event indicates that the EDI receive pipeline or the EDI Send pipeline could not process the incoming interchange because a data element was longer than the maximum length specified by the schema.

User Action

To resolve this error, shorten the data element in the interchange that was too long so it is below the maximum limit. To determine the maximum length, open the schema in the \XSD_Schema folder, search on the data element ID, and identify what the maxLength value is.
