    EDI ordering for different accounts at B&T (Enriched)

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Alma

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    Setting up separate EDI accounts with Baker & Taylor requires -

    * A suffix added to the NAD line (Name and Address) of the buyer/library.

    Desired result will display with a space between the buyer code and the suffix.

    For example: 'NAD+BY+123456789000 1000::9'

    * The UNB segment will contain the buyer/library code without the suffix.

    For example: 'UNB+UNOC:3+VendorEdiCode:EdiType+123456789000:Type+Date:time+110’

    Configure the vendor's EDI information tab this way:

    * Set the "EDI vendor format" to "Baker & Taylor Enriched"
    * Ensure your Organization Unit code contains the suffix (for example: "123456789000 1000")

    Here is a screencast that shows the 3 fields on a sandbox:

    Additional Information

    The November 2013 Release Notes enabled this feature, and explains:
