Scrap Factor on BOM's

Michelle, with the risk of losing Epicor support, I would not recommend any mass updates to the back-end directly. Have you contacted the customization group to get a quote from them to see what it would take-then you won't risk the response "well we didn't do the conversion/update blah blah, so we can't support you". This seems like a minor update to do but they would engage the adequate development know-how (methinks rationally) with all the tables and relationship knowledge to do this for you.
Just my humble .02!

We are on Vantage 8.03.404A. Our BOMs were built without a scrap factor
on the raw materials. Is the only way to get the scrap factor on the
BOM now other then to check out each individual part, add the factor,
approve and then check the part back in? Is there any way to mass
update this factor for all BOM's? We have thousands of BOM's and I am
looking for a shortcut on how to do accomplish this task. Does anyone
have any suggestions?

Michelle,

If you are adventurous, you can do it via an ODBC UPDATE routine - although I strongly urge you to try it on a copy of your live db and thoroughly test the results first.

Data maps (typically used to transfer data from a legacy system to vantage) are also available for a price.
