Data seems better in the XMP but the validator DO NOT recognize them

Hi,

I tried that
doc.Convert(new MemoryStream(), Aspose.Pdf.PdfFormat.ZUGFeRD, ConvertErrorAction.Delete);

the data seems better in the XMP but the validator DO NOT recognise them

For info here is a valid XMP content

Sage50_FactX.pdf (719.5 KB)
Sage50_FactX_GOOD.pdf (425.9 KB)
Sage50.pdf (424.1 KB)

Hello,

Thanks for your help.

I want to generate a factur-x compatible doc wich is very close to the ZUGFeRD

Sage50_FactX_GOOD is good one
Sage50 is the input
Sage50_FactX in the output

Note it seems that we are very closed to a good solution, may be the only diff is the schema uri.
factur-x will be the mandatory standard in france and it may be nice to handle it

Note that the embeded factur-x.xml XML file is correct
The problem is clearly the meta data

pdfaSchema:namespaceURIurn:factur-x:pdfa:CrossIndustryDocument:invoice:1p0#</pdfaSchema:namespaceURI>

Here is my code :

static void Convert(string inFile, string outFile, string xmlFile)
        {
            Aspose.Pdf.Document doc = new (inFile);
            FileSpecification fileSpecification = new(xmlFile, "factur-x.xml");
            fileSpecification.Description = "Factur-X invoice in XML format";
            fileSpecification.Name = "factur-x.xml";
            fileSpecification.MIMEType = "text/xml";
            doc.EmbeddedFiles.Add(fileSpecification);

            doc.Info.Keywords = "Invoice, Factur-X";


            doc.Convert(new MemoryStream(), Aspose.Pdf.PdfFormat.ZUGFeRD, ConvertErrorAction.Delete);
            doc.Save(outFile);

 
            Console.WriteLine("Generate "+ outFile);
        }

@Phildem

Could you please ZIP and attach the XML file that you used in your code? Thanks for your cooperation.

FactX.zip (4.5 KB)

Hi,

Here are the XML and the XMP which should be used for factureX

These is an important point for Sage to be able to generate factur-X and if our poc is valid we will use your solution. I think that we are near of the solution.
Thanks a lot for your help.
