1. Is there a way to view the errors that an inbound EDI document
contains. I couldn't tell what my errors were to be able to correct them.
If you want to view the Parsing errors of your EDI file then you have to use some third party tool such as EDI Notepad.
2. Is there a way to exclude compliance on an inbound document so that you
can bring it in regardless of the errors it contains. I know there is a
compliance check, but I don't think this applies when manually attaching an
EDI document, like I was doing now.
Skip compliance check works only at the Runtime level and it isn't applicable for the files loaded in the Data mapper for Preview purpose.
