Lord & Taylor has Implemented a New EDI Mapping

As you are aware by now, Lord & Taylor has implemented its new EDI mapping effective August 9, 2010.

Earlier in the year there were concerns by vendors who were not able to populate the P04 segment at the pack level of the ASN by the implementation date. In early May an email was sent to you explaining Lord & Taylor’s requirements and informing you that if you cannot populate these fields properly that as an interim solution you could hardcode “1” into these fields.

During the testing phase of this project we identified a number of you that populated some or all of these fields with “0”. This is not acceptable and will be rejected by Lord & Taylor’s translator. It is critical that, if you cannot provide the actual data, that you populate elements 06, 10, 11, 12 of the PO4 segment with “1”; otherwise your ASNs will be rejected by Lord & Taylor.

Example of correct data:

… HL*3**P^
… PO4******20*LB***5*5*2*IN^

… HL*3**P^
… PO4******1*LB***1*1*1*IN^

Also, data on your 856 ASNs and 810 invoices must reflect what was received in the PO you are shipping. Such data as ship to, department number, mark for stores, pricing, GTINs must be sent back as received on the PO.

Thank you for your cooperation in this important and exciting initiative. We appreciate your ongoing support.
