1.  Lanham EDI - 855 instead of 997

Posted 9 days ago
​We are finishing up an EDI integration with Amazon and they require the 855 Purchase Order Acknowledgement instead of the typical 997.  How do we set up Lanham inside NAV 2015 to kick those documents out instead of a 997?

Thanks

We're running NAV 2013R2 and I mapped an 855 for Amazon, but we never actually sent them one and surprisingly, they have never complained.

 

I just finished mapping an 855 for a new trading partner and it just passed the certification through SPS Commerce. I assumed that we would send both the 997 and the 855.

 

 

Here are the steps I used to process an EDI855 during testing:

 

    1. When the sales order is received, Customer Logistics/Order Processing should check the order and determine if it can be filled.
    2. The order detail should be changed to reflect what can be shipped. (Items and quantities)
    3. The sales order cannot be released before an EDI855 is created and sent.
    4. Processing and sending the EDI Advanced P.O. Acknowledgment (EDI 855)
      1. Go to the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Processing Menu (Departments/Electronic Data Interchange/Processing)
      2. Click Advance P.O. Acknowlegement List
      3. From the list, select the appropriate sales order and double-click or click Edit in the ribbon.
      4. Change the EDI Status Code in the Order Header and Order Lines as necessary.
      5. When completed click Send & Advance P.O. Acknowledgment in the home tab of the ribbon.

What is the field number you have for the Order Header's EDI Status code?  I don't seem to have that value on my sales headers.  And we only seem to have EDI Status Pending and EDI Cancelled Qty. as fields on the line items.  Does this correlate to what you have?  Also, what is the codeunit that runs the creation of the 855?  We don't seem to have a page action that runs the order status update.  I think because we never used this functionality before, our partner removed it entirely from the page.

​There is an Advanced EDI granule that you need.  The status codes are on tables 14002400 and 14002410 (Pages 14002414, 14002415) - Order Status Header and Order Status Line.

You need to be licensed for Lanhams EDI Extended Doc. Handling which include the 855 processing and related documents.  I am not sure in what version this was added but over that last 2 years Lanham has made significant updates to this functionality.  I think you may have this in your license but you may need to update the objects to the latest version from Lanham.

There will be an actual 855 document created where you can default the status codes or update them as needed and then send the 855.  This send process can be manual or automated.  It 's fairly easy to setup, We've done it for a few customers.

We send 855 to Amazon using Lanham Advance POA.  The 855 does not replace the 997, 997 is just a confirmation that you received the raw data file, 855 is telling them what will ship on the order and when.

We send a 997 when we receive any file from Amazon other then a 997, and we expect to receive a 997 when ever we send any file to amazon unless it was a 997.

Do you know what version of Lanham you are on?
I think the Advance POA started in release SE0.55.08.  You could still do 855 in the older releases but it was a different process and not the most user friendly.  If you are on a older release I would recommend upgrading Lanham software to the latest release.

It looks like we are on SE0.60.08.  When going through the Amazon self service integration, there is no 997 format given.  Are you sending these because that's what's typically done, or is there more documentation somewhere that details the 997 format?

Hi, we also currently trade with Amazon.  I have attached our 997 inbound and outbound mapping.  We're on an old version of Lanham but this might help you.  It is being used today and accepted.

The EDI 997 is really just an indication to Amazon in this case or any trading partner that you received a transaction set and nothing more. It does not tell Amazon that you agree to the terms of the order. Generally this is not an either/or. Virtually all transactions require a 997 response and you should be receiving them in response to transactions you send. 

The 855 PO Acknowledgment, however acknowledges the PO receipt and at a minimum allows you to Accept, Reject or Accept with changes, the PO. You can respond at either the header or line level or both and can change a number of data elements as requested. Examples are payment terms, ship date, Quantity etc.

You do have all the modules you need to respond in either way that Amazon wants you to respond and I can see that you have good advice on how to create and process one here in the forum.
