Subject: RE: [Vantage] How to Ship & Backorder Kit Parts?

The job traveller should act as the pick list. The sub-assemblies need to be
issued to the job. You can then create another packing slip report (in
report builder if you do not have an ODBC driver) that incorperates the
JobAsmbl table (you will also need the JobProd table).

This however will not solve the back-issue problem.
