Can you tell me if you support or intend to support the UK’s TRADACOMS format? I am also unsure how to process EDI files to XML once I have defined a template for this; ideally I would like the software to check a folder constantly for .MFD files and then translate these to XML and write these to another folder automatically, is this possible?

TRADACOMS input could be handled through the Convert to XML
module. For the field separator, instead of using a single
character, you would do '=','+'. The component separator would
be ':', the end-of-line character would be '\'', and the escape
character would be '?'.
I would be curious about the message, segment and element definitions;
from what I understand there are at least three versions of TRADACOMS
available - something like 1988, 1992 and 1993 versions. Do you have a
pointer to that information?
