We need help changing the shipment payment method code in process logic. When I open the Shipping Methods Setup screen, I see that the FOB Pay Code is set to the correct value (CC - Collect) but when we send the 940 to our warehouse it somehow changes to PP instead of CC. How do I get this corrected?

Kristin,

I do recommend to follow up with Johnny Johnson within File Integration Support as I see he last responded to you in a pending case instance regarding the 'ShipmentMethodOfPayment' logic for your 940s to the warehouse.  I.e. our business rules internally may be altering the values that are being exported via Process Logic.

Boyer team, can you please still weigh in here to help confirm where 'FOB Pay Code' values can be set?

Thank you,

Cory C. Mortenson

Hi Cory! Thanks for the response. I did hear from Johnny Johnson, but also from Tim Smith who said we shouldn't do a new business rule and should reach out to Boyer instead. he explained that a new rule would then apply to all customers and this might not be the best route. So, I am trying to reach out to Boyer, but this is the only contact venue I know of. Please help! Or let me know if there is a Boyer contact we should be calling emailing directly? We just want this to get fixed as soon as possible. I'm not personally set on having Boyer fix it vs. setting up a business rule (although we would need a rule specific to this customer)--we just want to find a good solution quickly. Thanks!

Kristin,

Absolutely my pleasure!  I certainly agree with Tim's assessment; it is best practice not to modify what is coming out of the adapter / GP level. 

I only suggest to check with the team to make sure that there are no current business rules that may interfere with the 'FOB Pay Code' value that Boyer helps to set.  From experience and familiarity with your account, I know that our business rules for your 940 document have customer specific logic to set the 'ShipmentMethodOfPayment'.  Therefore, since this is part of the initial scope, we can either use additional new business rules ( customer specific ) or have Boyer help set this at the adapter level.  Again, the latter is preferable and per best practice.  Let's wait for Boyer feedback. 

This is absolutely the correct place to direct such a question since Boyer & Associates collaboratively manages the space!

The FOB Pay code that is sent out on the 940 can have one of two values in it.  If the 850 (Purchase Order) called out a pay code, which is in position 32 of the header record, that value is sent on the 940.  If no pay code was sent on the 850 that is when the pay code is grabbed off the shipping method. 

I am checking with SPS right now to get a sample of the an 850 that when processed through to create the 940 is having this issue.  I will check position 32 and see if the trading partner is calling out a pay code.
