I had written this post many months ago, and didn’t really get any traction at the time.
Is the timing is better for a discussion now?
EDI X12 850, 855, 856 & 810 are the US distribution company’s bread and butter, especially when you participate in the supply-chain of the big-box and retail chains.
I’m still working through POC but have a beginning of a EDI module for populating Sales%20Order from 850. Much remains to be done though.
