CVS is Expanding Vendor Number Field in the EDI

July 20, 2011

The CVS EDI Department issued a statement that they will be changing the format of Vendor Numbers.

Effective August 19 at 3 pm CVS will be implementing an enhancement to expand the current vendor number length.

  • All vendor numbers will increase from 4 to 5 positions.
  • This change will impact the vendor number that is sent within the EDI data.
  • Suppliers should make whatever system adjustments are necessary to ensure data can process without issue.
  • Do not make the change early.
  • Initially after the change is completed the preceding character for all existing CVS vendor numbers will be the corp, for example 9999 will become 19999 a999 will become 2a999.
