My&nbsp;system setting

My system setting


Here you can create custom translations if the customer / supplier has unique requirements for electronic documents. You can create custom translations on outgoing and incoming documents. On the outbound documents, you can send via NemHandel or as an attachment in mail, for example. attached as a PDF document. 

NB! It is NOT necessary to create a Partner at normal shipping NemHandel (to the public).


If your financial system can not produce standard OIOXML / OIOUBL documents, so you can choose to create CSV extension instead. These documents must be translated into OIOXML / OIOUBL before they can be sent to the recipient.


If your financial system can not load the default OIOXML / OIOUBL documents, then you can choose to translate to a CSV file instead. You can also choose to translate to PDF if you just want to print the received documents and process them manually.


If you form extracts in CSV format instead of OIOXML / OIOUBL, you specify the tab CSV how your CSV file is built.


If you have customers / suppliers on the Tradeshift portal, you can enter your login information. You get them from the Tradeshift portal by activating MailEDI app on TradeShift. You might want to read this...

Partner details

Partner details

Example shown translator CSV input file to OIOXML (Invoice v0.7). The format is XML and stylesheet (translation template) is CSV_2_OIOXMLFaktura.xslt 

This setup means that if you create a CSV invoice from your ERP system to the created debtor, the system will translate to OIOXML and send it to your trading partner.

Mail: Means that you send the invoice as an attachment in an email 

Raspsend: Means that the file is translated and sent via NemHandel 

Receive: Indicates that incoming invoices (or other documents) from the partner translated specifically and / or placed in a special folder. 

Under the 'Output Format' you can choose different format types. Normally, all outgoing documents in XML format; but you can choose PDF, if the recipient wants it. On incoming documents is your ERP system that sets a limit on the format type. Can your ERP system load XML, select this, otherwise it will usually be CSV / text format to be loaded. If you have no desire to load the document into your ERP system, you can select PDF and then just print the document. If you just want to print the document can also be done from the 'Documents' menu.

Sending and receiving

The principle here is the same on the Partner Details, just here I have all outgoing (sending) and incoming documents (Receiving) regardless of which partner you are sending to. 

If you have both created documents in Sending and Partner, outgoing documents to be translated Partner / late accordance with the rules established in the Partner. For other beneficiaries will regleren from Sending be used for shipment.


If your ERP system (C5 / NAV / AX, etc) do not form OIOXML / OIOUBL files, you can still use XML-Faktura® and You can create a pull in a Comma Separated Values for (CSV)
