EDI 860

EDI 860 Purchase Order Change Request - Buyer Initiated:

The EDI 860 transaction set represents the electronic Purchase Order Change Request. It is used by buyers to request a change to a purchase order (EDI 850) they previously submitted. The 860 may also be used by buyers to confirm their acceptance of changes to purchase orders made by the sellers.

The 860 transaction is important for ensuring that the final order is accurate. The document provides information describing the original purchase order, as well as changes to that purchase order. Changes may include:
  • Add items
  • Change items
  • Change dates
  • Change quantity
  • Price change
  • Reschedule
After receiving an EDI 860 Purchase Order Change Request from a customer, the seller can send an EDI 865 Purchase Order Acknowledgment with Change in response.
