EDI "Notes to Supplier" Instructions

When creating a BEN Buys purchase requisition for one of the EDI suppliers listed above, you may have a need to include special instructions to the supplier. To do so, create a separate purchase order line by entering a non-catalog request detailing the special instructions to the supplier. This special “comments” line is identified to the system by leaving the Supplier Item Number empty and starting the Item Description with “ZZZ”; the rest of the Item Description field is then available for any order instructions you wish to send. Please do not use this process to request a "rush order" as the extra line for notes to the supplier will cause a slight delay in the supplier processing the order
