EDI 990 vs EDI 997

EDI 997, called a Functional Acknowledgment, is like a digital receipt for a transaction or document exchange. When a business sends any EDI document to a partner, an EDI 997 is sent back to the business to communicate that the preceding EDI document was received. A common misconception about EDI 997 is that it acts as an affirmative response to a request made by a trading partner. Unlike EDI 990, which allows a carrier to “accept” or “decline” a load tender (EDI 204), an EDI 997 is simply a verification that the sender’s document was received.
