ProBuild is enhancing the EDI 850 PO to accommodate item descriptions of up to 240 characters. This enhancement is effective on December 15, 2011.
Attached is version 1.4 of the ProBuild 850 Outbound Implementation Guide that describes the latest enhancement. The guide indicates that the maximum number of occurrences of the PID segment has been increased to from 1 to 3 occurrences. Each occurrence of the PID can hold up to 80 characters.
Please review revision 1.4 and all previous revisions listed in the Revision History of the attached ProBuild 850 Outbound Implementation Guide to ensure that you are mapping ProBuild’s 850 per our standards.
