Process EDI 850


EDI 850 is used to transmit sales orders into GoldFinch from your trading partners.

Receiving 850

Your EDI Software Provider will retrieve EDI 850 from your trading partners and insert them into the Import Orders object.

These EDI 850 documents include:

  • Customer

  • Ship-to

  • Item

  • Unit of Measure

  • Quantity

Creating Sales Orders

Navigate to the Import Orders tab in the GoldFinch Conversion app.

  1. Select the Not Processed view.  This view will be filtered on the Processes field = false. 

  2. Select all records that you would like to create the orders for.  

  3. Click the Create Sales Orders button.

Note:  To prevent duplicate sales orders from being created, Do Not Allow Duplicate PO must be selected on the customer Account.

Error Text

If there are any errors that will not allow the Sales Orders to be created, the Import Orders lines will not be processed, and an error text will be written to display the reason the order cannot be created.
