I received an error message in my WebForms inbox from Walmart that says "Department not Valid for this Store." What does that mean and how can I fix this problem?

This is an error generated in Walmart's system (this could be Walmart USA, Walmart Canada, or Sam's Club) regarding the Walmart Department number that you listed on the Header tab of an invoice you sent to Walmart.

The number that you put in this field is assigned to you by Walmart and should be five-digits. If the number you received from Walmart is not five-digits, you will just want to add zeroes to the beginning of it to make it comply with their system's requirements. If you don't have your Walmart department number, you will have to request that information from them.
