What is involved with this conversion?

Walgreens will be converting their distribution centers in Windsor, Wisconsin (Legacy DC #3), Perrysburg, Ohio (Legacy DC # 11), Williamston, South Carolina (Legacy DC #18), Pendergrass, Georgia (Legacy DC #42), and Moreno Valley, California (Legacy DC #12) to SAP on April 30. Please be aware that Walgreens will eventually switch all DC locations, so please keep an eye out for any communication from Walgreens regarding these conversions.

What do I need to do?

For the Distribution Centers listed above, you'll need to switch the transactions you're using to transactions that end with SAP. For example, if you're currently using the Invoice transaction, you'll want to use Invoice SAP.

To do this:

  1. Click the Navigation Menu icon in the upper left hand corner of Foundry.

  2. In the flyout menu under Transaction Manager, click Trading Partners, and select Walgreens.

  3. In the Action Bar, click Preferences and then Transactions.

  4. In the list of transactions, make sure that any applicable SAP transaction is: a) marked as Active and b) switched to Production.

Additional Notes for Integrated Transactions

  • Be sure to familiarize yourself with the SAP transactions, especially with regard to any terms you may be sending. How this information is pulled from your ERP onto the transaction upon Import may need to be adjusted. For instance, if Walgreens indicates that the allowance needs to be in the G72*02 segment at the header level, you'll need to know what field that segment relates to in the transaction. Check out this article for steps on how to look for segment and element data within a transaction.

  • Walgreens sends UPC for non-SAP orders, and GTIN for the SAP orders. If you create your transactions by Turnaround, the details should pull onto the transaction automatically. If you import, we can work with you to create a Lookup table for these values.

  • If you will be importing transactions for SAP locations, be sure to update the Import Document Type in your Transaction Manager settings for the applicable SAP transactions.
