Challenges in Flat File Testing

Testing of inbound flat files presents unique challenges because the producer of the flat file is usually different organizations within an enterprise or an external vendor. Consequently, there might be differences in the format and content of the files since there is no easy way to enforce the data type and data quality constraints on the data in the flat files. Issues in flat file data can cause failures in the consuming process. While the file processing requirements are different from project to project, the focus of this use case is to list out some of the common checks that need to be performed for validating flat files.
