CVS Mapping Specifications

EDI provides industry-recognized electronic transmission standards for an extremely wide variety of business documents. These standards were reviewed by CVS and mapping requirements were developed for each electronic document to be exchanged.

All Documents sent by CVS to Supplier Trading Partners require FA (997) in return.

Please note that the following Terminators and Separators are required by CVS:

Subelement Separator..ISA16: ¬ or EBCDIC Hex 5F
Element Separator.................:  * or  EBCDIC Hex 5C
Segment Terminator..............:  ~ or  EBCDIC Hex A1

We have a relationship with IBM/Sterling.
*The VAN and associated ID is below.

VAN: IBM/Sterlng


The links below will provide you with the guidelines determined by CVS to be included in the inbound and outbound transactions. The required documents are: 850, 810, 812, 824, 830, 856, 860, 864, & 997 for warehouse delivery suppliers.

Please note that CVS uses a 3rd party called Descartes for the ASN (856) document so you will need to use a different EDI ISA receiver ID.  This ID is ZZ/CVS856ASN.

For DSD suppliers only the 810, 812, 824, 864 and 997 are required at this time.
