How much data to send on a PO Change



I'd like to know what the standard is for sending a PO Change to a vendor. We are setting up a web services Procurement document exchange with our vendors and I was wondering if there is a standard business opinion on how much of the PO Header and Line item data is sent to the supplier on a PO Change?


A PO with 5 line items is created.

1. Just some header data changes. Do we resend just the header? Or do we resend the entire PO?

2. Just a line item changes. Do we resend the entire PO? Or maybe the entire header and only the line that changed? Or maybe just the PO number (header) and the line item that changed?
