Order Confirmation

Customers often asks to receive an order confirmation. The supplier can use the EDI X12 997 message for this. The EDI X12 997 is the ‘Functional Acknowledgment’ with which the supplier indicates that he has received the order. However, the buyer and supplier can also choose to send an EDI X12 855 Order Acknowledgment instead of the EDI X12 997. The EDI X12 855 is the Order Acknowledgment and with this message the supplier can indicate that he or she has accepted the order. does not accept. Sometimes the customer will want to change an order that has been placed. He can do this via the EDI X12 860 Order Change Request.
