Lanham EDI Outbound 850 UOM Conversion

  • 1.  Lanham EDI Outbound 850 UOM Conversion

    Posted Apr 15, 2021 10:12 AM
    Hi,

    Has anyone done UOM conversions using Lanham EDI mapping?

    We are using Lanham EDI to send outbound 850 purchase orders to vendors. The UOM for gross weight on the purchase order is currently calculated in pounds out of NAV and we want to convert that to kilograms in the EDI 850 document for our vendors.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks,
    Don

    Hi Don!
    Thank you for your inquiry into converting LB to KG when sending outbound Purchase Orders using Lanham EDI. This is not current existing functionality to do this. A suggestion may be to create a custom EDI OUT. I can help you with this if you would like additional information on how to create a custom EDI OUT and what codeunit to modify.  Please let me know how I may further help you!
    Have a great day!
