Walgreens will be implementing an upgrade to our Accounts Payables system.
To: Valued EDI Invoice Trading Partners:
This letter is to inform you that effective Friday, March 16, 2007, Walgreens will be implementing an upgrade to our Accounts Payables system. We want to inform you of a couple things that will impact you as a result of this upgrade and ask for your help in ensuring timely, accurate payments throughout the transition.
- Invoice numbers must be "unique" (cannot be reused) to each billing within your associated a/p vendor account beginning March 16, 2007
- The size of the invoice number used within our system will be expanded from 6 digits to 22 alpha/numeric characters, This will allow your entire invoice number, including alpha/numeric characters to be returned in your remittance information on all invoices processed.
Your cooperation in complying with this request for "unique" invoice numbers on your billings will ensure a smooth transition and prevent any delayed or rejected processing.
If you have any questions please respond to this email or contact Aaron Fesser at 217-554-8776.
