ZUGFeRD – eDocPrintPro PDF/A-3

Produced by XKEY GmbH

For a ZUGFeRD invoice also a PDF/A-3 has to be created as well as a XML file has to be available. The XML usually gets created from the ERP. The ZUGFeRD eDoc printer driver allows with a simple print process to create such invoices out of any application.

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.

With the eDocPrintPro ZUGFeRD printer driver it is easily possible to embed a XML file with the invoice information to the via print process created PDF/A-3. To further process the XML-file at another place, it has to be extracted from the PDF container. To make this possible we offer a free commandline tool. Passing the path of the ZUGFeRD PDF file as parameter, the ZUGFeRD XML found in the PDF gets extracted and saved with the same name and path as the PDF.
