Difference Between EDI Process and Z files

Many times it came to my mind "why does JDE have 2 differently referenced systems that bring in outside data?" Why is AP and AR typically brought in via Z-file processes, but sales orders, invoicing, ASN`s and others have something called a system 47?

I don`t think there`s a good answer as to why JDE decided "this one is 47, but this one is Z-files". If I had to guess, I`d say that they tried to marry the typical ANSI-X12 standard EDI docs that manufacturers typically exchange (850, 810, 856) to something with an overarching name called system 47. I think system 47 processes are a bit more robust/complicated. More screens and logic dedicated to them. Whereas the Z-files, though effective, are a little more "thrifty", if you would. The initial interfaces are maybe a bit more basic, the UBE`s that process them aren`t really more than shells which call the same business functions that are used in the interactive screens to process data. System 47 re-uses some BF`s too, but again in my experience they`re a bit more robust.

The bottom line answer is they both serve to process in outside data (or prep internal data for transfer), but just have different system codes.
