In Oracle Retail Invoice Matching (ReIM) 12.0.12, the ReimEDIInvUpload batch aborts with an error when the uploaded EDI file is empty and contains no invoices. 

Steps to Reproduce: 

1. Run the Retail Merchandising System (RMS) process edidlinv with no invoices to process.  It creates the file edidlinv.out_1 with format similar to the following (i.e., no THEAD/TDETL):


2. Run the ReimEDIInvUpload process to upload the file in ReIM. The log gives the following error:

"log4j:ERROR Either File or DatePattern options are not set for appender [BATCHFILE].
