The EDI 850 Purchase Order is an electronic version of a paper purchase order transaction set. The EDI 850 is sometimes also referred to as "PO". It is used by buyers to place an order for goods or services from a supplier. The supplier sends a 997 functional acknowledgment back to the buyer to confirm the receipt of the EDI 850 Purchase Order. Buyers then send an EDI 855 Purchase Order Acknowledgement to the supplier to confirm the requirements in the purchase order.
