The "Open Directory" function works only when the output mode is not "Screen" but "Data Export" or "Image File".

Follow the instructions below to open a batch of EDI files located in one folder.

Note: You cannot display a batch of EDI files on screen in a preview window, it is possible only for one file. See Processing a Payment Advice File.
