Has anyone had an experience creating an outbound 855 from Lanham's EDI Gen2 system? I have several customers that are requiring this document but the examples that came with the system do process to the extent that our customers are asking for.

Below is one example of the requirements for one of the segments:
Example: ACK*IA***068*20000720
Where element 01 = IA, it could be any of the following:
“IA” – Item Accepted
“IC” – Item Accepted, Changes made (item #, price)
“IR” – Item Rejected
“ID” – Item Deleted

I don't know how to get this kind of detail into these documents.

Any help????? ](*,)

Usually, we default it to IA since they want a response immediately. Then if there are problems, the customer would call the buyer and inform them.

I guess I am looking for the EDI module to be a bit more than it is. We have a few customers that are looking for everything to be communicated only via EDI and the EDI module in NAV doesn't seem to accommodate much out of the box.

Nope. I wished Lanham's EDI module does a little more on this as well as other areas too. But at it stands right now, no... :(

You'll have to add a field called EDI Item Status on the lines so when you click send 855, it'll export this new field as well. The tradeoff is that this will be very time consuming for the data entry clerk.

It is very difficult to work with.

By chance, do you know of an EDI option outside of Lanham for NAV??

You could use commerce gateway and do all the EDI mapping XML in BizTalk.

Commerce Gateway is not a good solution for EDI. It's very costly and not as flexiable as Lanham's product.

We are using NAV 3.6 and I am not sure how XML plays into 3.6. As Alex stated we are looking for more flexibility.

3.6 still has Commerce Gateway, and the mapping will be done in Biztalk.
Take a look at what Commerce Gateway offers. You basically deal with xml documents and EDI to xml are handled by Biztalk.

We went down the Lanham route because the quote for the Biztalk setup was lots & lots of money.

Yes, the BizTalk option is quite costly. We have BizConnect and to upgrade to BizTalk was more than 80K. :shock:

I wonder if Lanham has an add-on to help process the next level of EDI. It is hard for me to believe that an EDI program is purely just import/export of flat files. We should have the ability to be more Dynamic. :-s

If you are using bizconnect, you could just integrate it with Navision, or set it up to work with Commerce Gateway. You don't have to use Biztalk.

I am not familiar with using the Commerce Gateway. Will it create Sales Orders, Purchase Order and do all of the EDI functionality? I need something that is more flexible than Lanham's EDI piece.

Have you called Lanham and spoke to them about this? If enough people calls, MAYBE they'll do something about it. :(

They haven't changed it for a while.

A lot of people have asked them to separate E-ship and EDI, they haven't done that.
