What is EDI file?

EDI file extension is used by database files conforming to the EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) standard. EDI files store strucutred data in plain text format.

EDI files are used for exchanging variou data between two entities. EDI format was created as a result of a standardized means of transmitting digital information. There exist many different EDI standard implementations, and no one program supports them all. Therefore, entities exchanging data in EDI files should mutually ensure that they use the same EDI standard.

Popular EDI standards:

ENACOM, EDIFACT, IDOC (SAP), TRADACOMS, EDITRANS (transport), EDIFICE (IT), ETIS (communication), cXML, XCBL, VDA (automotive industry), ODETTE (automotive industry), ANSI, X12, CSV, OAGIS.

Programs that support EDI file

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the EDI file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the EDI file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the EDI file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the EDI file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the EDI file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the EDI file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
