    Message Management 

    • MessageAcknowledgement
    • ApplicationResponse: A message used by one Application (the receiver of a Business Document) to indicate to another Application (the sender of the Business Document) a business response to the received document. The document can report content errors in a document, acknowledge the receipt or successful processing of a document or can be used in those cases where a business response is needed. The ApplicationResponse document is only to be used when a specific response document does not exist for a Business Document.

    Invoicing and Payment 

    Material Managment 

    • AdvanceShipmentNotice
    • GoodsReceipt: A message initiated by the party, which received the goods. In most cases this is the buyer, but can also be a third party. The GoodsReceipt can be used to provide customary and established business and industry practice relative to the notification of receipt or formal acceptance of goods and services. The message is used to report the physical receipt of goods. It allows for the reporting of discrepancies in products, quantities, terms, packages, etc. It should not be used to convey inventory positions- this will be handled in a separate xCBL document. The GoodsReceipt is often sent when there is a discrepancy between the material being received and the information that was transmitted in the AdvanceShipmentNotice (ASN). The GoodsReceipt can also be used as a credit memo in a 'pay on ASN relationship.' In this scenario the GoodsReceipt is used as a reference for payment, as in an Evaluated Receipt Settlement (ERS).
