ZUGFeRD PDF/A-3 printer for electronic invoices. Structured data as embedded XML.
The electronic invoice according to the ZUGFeRD standard allows the exchange of data without prior consultation of the partners via the data format. A PDF / A3 file is used as a container. It contains structured XML data!
ZUGFeRD – PDF/A-3 Printer driver for electronic invoices
For a ZUGFeRD invoice PDF/A-3 must be created and an XML file must exist. The XML is usually generated from the ERP. The eDocPrintPro ZUGFeRD PDF / A printer driver extends the PDF / A printer driver by the possibility to create ZUGFeRD compliant documents. The required XML file must already exist – it is not created by the printer driver.
Possible courses: the XML is available in any cases, the print process is done via the ZUGFeRD eDoc driver:
- interactive choice of the XML file via file dialog
- “silent” processing of the XML with pre defined path and file name.
- XML can also be deleted after embedding automatically to create a defined state.
- Starting of the print process via the eDoc SDK, the destinaion path and names of the PDF’s is adjusted through the SDK, the document printed, the XML gets embedded automatically and afterwards an event about the finishing of the process is passed back to the application.
