NAV 2016 and setting up an EDI 210 to receive EDI Invoice from freight carrier

  • 1.  NAV 2016 and setting up an EDI 210 to receive EDI Invoice from freight carrier

    Posted 18 days ago

    Hi All,

    Pretty frustrated with setting up an EDI 210 for our freight carrier to send us invoices and then create a Purchase Invoice.  We hired a company 2.5 years ago and they got nowhere.  I have successfully created 850's, 810's, 997's with out issues and get them into production with our trade partners.

    This 210 one has me stumped.  Does anyone have any detailed documention/screen examples on how I do this and map it to create a Purchase Invoice? We do not create PO's for this carrier and only receive invoices from them. It would be so appreciated.

    Since I started here 4 months ago, I was new to Nav, now I have a lot of knowledge of how most of works and have modified C/AL code, so I'm getting a handle more and more each day.

    Thanks,

    Miles

    Hello Miles,

     

    What NAV EDI Tool are you using for your implementation?

     

    Thanks

    Thanks for the reply.

    I'm setting it up directly Nav as I have all the others.  We use Cleo Lixicom for transmission for send receive, but that's not the issue.

    I've looked everywhere on how to set up a 210 in Nav and have it produce a Purchase Invoice when we get the EDI invoice from the carrier.  810's, 850's, 997 are a piece of cake... But have never done a 210.  Any documentation would be great as I haven't found any.  I have the 210 specs, so I know all about that.

    Thanks,

    Miles

    Out of the box NAV does not have EDI, so you must have some add-on.  I know that Lanham Associates has an EDI system that is fully integrated to NAV.  I don't know if anyone else provides EDI that is integrated inside NAV.

    Hey Bill.  We have LanHam.  Lewis Rosenberg got back to me yesterday with some documentation. He was a great help.  Going to start working on it this morning and see where I get.  We do not create purchase orders for shipping so I need to directly create a purchase invoice when the 210 comes in and we send a 997 out.  Really need to get this done before the busy season for us before it starts, which is about September to mid January.  We ship a lot of goods.

    I'll pop back on here in a bit to let everyone know my progress.  This should be fun.

    Thanks

    Miles

    While I would like to see Lanham post their documentation somewhere where it would easily accessible for their customers, their documentation is marked as "Lanham Confidential: For use by Lanham Resellers and Customers only."  It may be best to let Lanham post any documentation as they see fit.

    Darn,

     

    I totally missed the mark on that one.  I think I need another coffee, way too tired.

     

    Sorry about that!

    Hi Michael

     

    Here's a link that Lewis gave me for the forum as well as the Lanham document he forwarded me.

     

    https://www.navug.com/communities/community-home/digestviewer/viewthread?MessageKey=291b9884-d694-4694-a412-93adf30a1606&CommunityKey=95503735-5a0b-4af1-8326-9bd7bb3b4d3d&tab=digestviewer#bm291b9884-d694-4694-a412-93adf30a1606

     

    I don't have a paid account but am getting my company to buy it as I couldn't get into the links.  The 210 setup wasn't all that hard but I am still having a cross reference issue when processing the incoming 210 as we do not issue PO's for shipping.  We have a VAR that I will be talking to about this, hopefully today.  It has to do with mapping the Vendor in the Vendor Cross References I expect.

     

    Cheers,

     

    Miles

    Miles, Lewis is completely correct. Our Lanham EDI is built inside NAV or Business Central. It uses the same user interface and drill down as NAV/BC and stores everything in your own database.

    We have 25+ years of intellectual property involved in our EDI solution, and many have copied things about it. For that reason, our design is proprietary, and we don't post our documentation publicly. It is key to our continued existence. That said, we do have a great deal of documentation on all of our products in many versions.

    Please always feel free to reach out to us and request documentation. We will gladly provide it! We just ask that you don't share it outside of your company or Lanham partner.

    Continued success to you!

    It sounds like you have Lanham EDI that you are using, as Lewis noted there is no EDI functionality in the base product. It should be similar to an inbound 850 except that you are mapping it to Purchase Header and Purchase Lines with a Document Type of Invoice.

    Mile,
    Lanham EDI does support 210 to create a Purchase Invoice.   Make sure to map where the "Navision Document" = I_FGTINV.  Also on the E.D.I. Template, set "Create Purch. Document on Rec." = TRUE.  I see that Lewis has helped you with some documentation.  I hope you are squared away and that you are able to successfully create the Purchase Invoice from the i210.
    Hope you have a great day!
