What is an EDI 860?

The EDI 860 is a X12 transaction set for a Purchase Order Change Request that has been initiated by the buyer. The EDI 860 includes information such as:

  • Purchase order and date
  • Warehouse identification
  • Requested pick up date
  • Retailer name and department information
  • Change type (e.g. cancellation)

Benefits of implementing the EDI 860

Implementing the EDI 860 allows you to quickly and easily change your order information without the hassle of re-keying data into your various systems or attempting to change the purchase order via email or fax. This reduces waste and helps avoid human error.
