Alternator on V10 not charging

I replaced the engine starting battery in my 2009 E450 V10. No sparks or any other problems. It was a simple replacement! Now the alternator wouldn't charge! Help! Need to hit the road today.
Thanks

Assuming the battery light is on?

Shouldn't have been sparks if you unhooked battery before starting the job.

Assuming the alternator didn't just give out I'd say you missed attaching a wire.

Or blew a fuse

Battery light is on. As posted "No sparks or any other problems." All connections as they were before . Fuse which fuse?

Not familiar with ford systems however, ford used to use fusible links on starter wires and you may have to get into fuse box to check for a blown fuse.

Is there power @ the main terminal @ the alternator?

How are you able to tell it is not working correctly?

You didn't say if the engine was running, or not. A key on and engine not running will give a battery light on
