A good way to do this is to place the total quantity on a release but
enter a required date in the future (example 12/25/2050) An easily
recognizable date.

Change the PO form to suppress the release date if it equals 12/25/2050
and display 'To be Called off' as text instead.

When you want to call off a quantity, enter it has a new release for the
date required and reduce the release for 12/25/2050 by the same amount.

The PO will then show two releases, one for your called off qty the
other will say 'To be called off' which will be the balance

The only way I have ever done a blanket sales order or a PO is to make
the first release the desired quantity for the year.

Then every time an order is made, REDUCE the first release, then create
the next release for the quantity needed.

That way you know what is left for their desired quantity for the year
by watching the first release.

Yeah, yeah, what a pain...but this always worked for me.

If others have a better way, please be my guest to let me learn a new
way!

Where a release does not increase the actual quantity on PO line? We
want to setup the PO line with an annual quantity and issue a release
when we need quantity delivered. However, the way we have it now the
release wants to increase the quantity of the PO line.

There is an option on the line to "lock order qty" - maybe this will do
it? Check in help...I am using a terminal server with no help
available...

We go right into the release tab in order entry. When we enter the 1'st,
2'nd or 3rd release we just put the qty there. At the end your total
will sum up as line 1 on the sales order. Also if you have dates keep
the firm check box checked, if not leave uncheck that way you can select
the dates in the future.
