V8 Drop Shipping

The Cycle Counter before myself had "Phantom Bin Locations" and what
we found is things get misplaced, people forgot why they made the
change, and in general our inventory problems were as huge as a
mountain.

Not saying it cannot work for you ... just letting you know my first
job was to get rid of all the "Phantom Locations".

We are in the testing stage in implementing V803

We drop ship about 5% of the lines on Sales Orders, about 10 per day.
Does anyone have a method to control that drop ships are purchased?
I'm thinking of creating a phantom warehouse for dropships. That way
if we drop ship an item that is also in stock( this happens when we
dropship a complete order when only some items are in stock), there
will be less confusion. Does anyone see a negative to this phantom
warehouse, or have a better idea? Any dropship info will be helpfull.
