The data exchange between companies is increasing in mass and importance. Therefore an automated processing of incoming data is absolutely necessary.
For this reason, we are working with a software tool that only supports the processing of data that fits the ENGDAT-Standard. This standard offers the possibility to automatically distribute the data, but therefore demands the input of necessary and valid information from our partners.
This site contains detailed information regarding the use of ENGDAT.

ENGDAT filenames for data exchange with BEHR
In order to route files automatically to the end user, BEHR uses ENGDAT (VDA 4951). With the use of the current data exchange software, it is no longer possible to process the import of non-ENGDAT data.
The structure of an ENGDAT filename looks as follows:
ENG JJMMTT hhmmss acode ANZ NUM
26 digits (without blanks!)
||5-digit address code
||Total Amount of Files
||Current file number
According to VDA 4951, the file with NUM="001" is the abstract file and the remaining files contain the data. The 5-digit address code is used as the routing code in segment 0014 inside the abstract file (ENGDAT header). The address code can additionally be set at position "acode" in the ENGDAT filename.
Until further notice, we are still able to receive data without an abstract file. In this case the address code must be set in the ENGDAT filename at position "acode".
A list of adress codes of our emplyees is available and can be send to you by request. If necessary we can provide an ENGPART list.
If you are unable to support our naming concept for any reason, please contact us so we can think of an alternative solution.
