Functional Group CA
X12M Supply Chain Subcommittee
This X12 Transaction Set contains the format and establishes the data contents of the Purchase Order Change Acknowledgment/Request - Seller Initiated Transaction Set (865) for use within the context of an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) environment. The transaction set can be used by the seller to convey acceptance or rejection of changes to a previously submitted purchase order from the buyer. The transaction set is used by the seller to accept, reject, or modify a purchase order. Also, the transaction set can be seller-initiated to change a purchase order.
What is an EDI 865?
An EDI 865 Purchase Order Change Acknowledgment/Request - Seller Initiated communicates a response to the buyer's EDI 860 Purchase Order Change Request - Buyer Initiated. Similar to the EDI 855 Purchase Order Acknowledgement, it contains information about whether the EDI 860 has been accepted or not (BCA segment), line level detail (POC segment) and per line acknowledgment detail (ACK segment).
How is an EDI 865 used?
For example, Retailer A accidentally orders 100 units of a SKU from Vendor B in an EDI 850 Purchase Order. Retailer A then realizes their mistake, and reduces the order to 10 units of the SKU by issuing an EDI 860 Purchase Order Change Request - Buyer Initiated to Vendor B. Vendor B responds with an EDI 865 Purchase Order Change Acknowledgment/Request - Seller Initiated to confirm they will only fill the 10 units.
