Exporting a Collision Supplement using the CIECA EMS Standard
Posted on 2003-02-28
I'm hoping that there's an expert here that has experience with an application implementing the EMS Standard which is used by applicaitons throughout the Body Shop / Collision Repair industry (data passed between apps in EMS standardized dBase IV files).
I'm charged with modifying an existing application to export an EMS formatted dbase IV file from my app that can be imported into one of the popular Collision Industry apps, sold by Mitchell, etc. I'm looking for detail on how the package is wrapped up, how the different EMS file formats are used and created, and possibly any sample code in VB 6.0.
I'm aware of the CIECA, have signed my company up with the organization, and have been browsing their materials on file structures, etc. Just need a lot more detail on implementation.
Thanks for your time - MT
