When the batch job for electronic sales invoices is processed, invoices for customers who have an EAN number assigned are generated as .xml files. The .xml files are then converted to the OIOUBL format. The resulting OIOUBL files are created in the shared folder that is specified for the EInvoiceFileTransform_OIOUBL batch job task for the sales order batch job.
