Outbound PO ACK 855 EDI documents may be created without an originating Inbound PO 850 EDI document. To do so, apply the configuration settings as described below.

Integration Configuration - SPS855

Set ALLOW_STANDALONE_855 to Y to enable Standalone 855 documents.
Set ALLOW_STANDALONE_855 to Y to enable Standalone 855 documents.

To enable Standalone 855 documents, go to SPS Integration > SPS Integration Setup > Integration Configuration and select SPS855 from the drop-down.

For the parameter ALLOW_STANDALONE_855, set both the B1 Value and External Value fields to Y.

Workflow Service Update

As part of the workflow service, default 850 xml must be configured. To do this, ensure there is an default850.xml file in the Workflow Service’s DefaultResultDocuments folder, which contains the following contents. Note that the default location for this file is: C:Program Files (x86)/zedIT/zed WorkFlowservice/xml/DefaultResultDocuments/default850.xml.

Ensure default850.xml contains the following code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Orders xmlns="http://www.spscommerce.com/RSX">
	<Order>
	</Order>
</Orders>

Sales Order “SPS Order” Flag

By default, SAP Business One (B1) Sales Order documents do not result in an Outbound PO ACK 855 EDI document, even when all other settings are enabled. A flag must be set on the B1 Sales Order document to ensure Outbound PO ACK 855 EDI documents are only generated on an as-needed basis.

To generate a standalone Outbound PO ACK 855 EDI document, ensure the SAP Business One Sales Order document has its SPS Order UDF set to “Yes”.

Set the SPS Order field to Yes for SAP Business One Sales Order documents that must generate a standalone Outbound PO ACK 855 EDI document.
