      The .B2B files have to be un-zipped and saved in the developer/administrator work- station. This should be used for the various EDI-XML converters. You can see the names of the available B2B files below. All the files below have to be installed for full functionality.

    4. B2B_EDI_TABLES-<v 1.0>.b2b
    5. B2B_X12_TABLES-<v 1.0>.b2b

    11. Extract the XSD content from the file. It provides the service interfaces for different EDI formats and versions. The .XSD files have to be un-zipped and saved in the developer/administrator work- station.


      NOTE: XSDs provided by SAP are bulk and you must not import/use all XSDs in ESR. It is advised and recommended to use XSDs only for those EDI message types/versions/transactions which will be used in the business scenarios.
