Setting The Release Character
The release character is only used while validating EDIFACT documents. Setting the release character enables correct segment parsing for EDIFACT files. If the release character is not set properly then validation errors will occur. You can set the release character for the EDI file by setting the ReleaseCharacter property of the EDIValidator. By default this value is ‘?’.
ediValidator.Delimiters.ReleaseCharacter = ‘?’;
Release characters are only used in EDIFACT file validation.
