This lesson will show you step by step how to update a map sent from 123 EDI.

Download the Updated Map sent from 123 EDI

1) Download the compressed folder containing the Updated Map (ex. 880_out_4010_publix.FXP) that you received from 123 EDI.
This image shows the Compressed (zipped) Folder being downloaded from a hotmail account.

Save the Updated Map to the Desktop

1) Select Desktop.
2) Click Save.

Locate the Original Map to save a copy before updating

In your EDI Engine directory(1) there is a Maps directory(2) where all the Maps used by your company are stored. In this example the ediengine directory is on the Local Disk (C:). See "How to locate your EDI Engine directory" for tips on finding the maps directory.

1) Click on the ediengine directory to open.
2) Click on the maps subdirectory to open.
3) Select the original filemap (ex. 880_out_4010_publix.FXP) .

Backup the Original Map before updating

1) Right click on the original map (ex. 880_out_4010_publix.FXP). 
2) Select Copy.

Backup the Original Map before updating

1) Open the backup directory of your choice. Or, if you don't already have a backup directory create a new subdirectory for old maps in the maps directory. In this example I opened old, a subdirectory of maps that was created for map backups. (C:\ediengine\maps\old).
2) Right click in the folder.
3) Select Paste to copy the original map to this directory.

Open the Compressed Folder containing the Updated Map

1) Click on maps to return to the maps directory.
2) Double click on the Updated Map Compressed Folder to open it.

Copy Updated Map to EDI Engine Maps Directory

1) Select the Updated Map (ex. 880_out_4010_publix.FXP) from the compressed folder that was downloaded to the desktop.
2) Drag it to the EDI Engine maps directory (ex. C:\ediengine\maps).

Copy and Replace

Select Copy and Replace to replace the Original Map that was just backed up with the Updated Map you received from 123 EDI.

Your Map will be updated the next time you open EDI Engine.
