Menards - we are making some changes to our 850 Purchase Order specifications

 Change Summary

1) Special Orders - Shipments to our guests

At present, we qualify the BEG02 element as OS for any special order that a guest places with Menards.  Going forward, we will use one of two qualifiers in this element depending on the shipping location.

        - OS...this will be used to identify special order shipments to Menard Store or DC locations

        - DR...this will be used to identify special order shipments to home residences or jobsite locations designated by our guests  

2) Vendor Identification - A new REF segment will appear on all purchase orders from Menards identifying the Vendor# and Vendor Name associated with the order.  It may be ignored if you desire or used for turnaround information on documents you transmit to Menards where Vendor # (Accts Payable #) is required.

3) Vendor Part# - We will begin to populate the PO108 / 109 if the system knows the vendor part number information for the line item being ordered.  We do not currently maintain a complete database of sku / part # relationships.  The orders in which we expect the most frequent usage of these new elements are the special orders we place with our vendors.
