Electronic Order Confirmation

Midwest Library Service produces email confirmation reports in Minimal, Summary, and Detail formats as described below. Confirmations are available for orders received in an EDI or BISAC format, as well as for orders created using InterACQ.

Confirmations are e-mailed the next business day following receipt of the electronic order.

The Minimal report provides the total quantity and dollar amount of all orders received within the body of the email message. 

Quantity/$ Total

The Summary report provides the total quantity and dollar amount of all orders received in an attached text file.  The summary may be subtotaled by PO or Fund.

Quantity/$ Total
PO#/Quantity/$ Total
Fund #/Quantity/$ Total

The Detail report lists each order received.  It is attached to the email message in either a Text, PDF or CSV format.  The available sort options are:

Same order as received
Title
Author/Title
PO #/Title
Fund #/Title

Detail Text or PDF formats provide ISBN, title, author, quantity, price and PO.  When sorted by PO, the fund is listed for each item.  When sorted by PO or Fund, subtotaling occurs for each PO or Fund.

The Detail CSV format provides a comma delimited file which can be imported into database and spreadsheet programs.  We can customize the columns to your specifications.
