Todd,

Can you export the customization so we could test it. I'm not a
developer so I don't know how to bind the table links as you discussed
unless it is in a BAQ. We are having a similar shipping problem this
would be a good place to start correcting it.

Regards,

Andrew Best

We do this with a UD field on the Part (our parts are all specific to a
customer). This is then printed on a special version of the Traveler we
call a Ship Advisor that shipping uses to pack releases. It could
perhaps be a VB Form field on Customer too.

Subject: [Vantage] Shipping 'overs'

In our industry, commercial printing, it is not uncommon to ship the
customer up to a certain percentage over or under their order quantity.
We are having difficulty communicating to production when a customer
will accept overs. I am wondering if there is anyone out there that has
an elegant solution to this?

My initial thought would be to be able to specify an over percent and an
under percent at the customer level. I would then like those values to
default into the sales order line item and then subsequently print on
the Sales Order Acknowledgement and on the linked Job Traveler. Can
anyone offer guidance how to go about this? Offer better solution, etc.

Thanks

Todd H.

Thanks for the response Todd. I should have pointed out that we are
8.03.404 as there is more flexibility in 8 than in 6.1. 98% of our jobs
are custom, non part master parts.

Todd;

We added OrderDtl.Number01 to the Lines tab in Order Entry.
Then we added it to our already custom Job Traveler. We have had to
crate our own dataset since Epicor's standard does not include every
field within the JOB* tables; additionally other things we needed on
the Traveler (like the customer name if the job is make direct).

The hard part was to then add it to display on the Customer Shipment
Entry screen; as production dumps everything they produced to
shipping. It is upon the Shipping Department to know how many of the
overs they are allowed to ship.

I think our developer added a new FKV to then bind the two tables so
you can add the OrderDtl.Number01 to the ShipDtl (Customer Shipment
Entry-Lines tab).

If you need I could export the customization and send it to you
offline.
Thanks
