Yes, you can check this out by looking at your MRP Exception Report
(MRP200). This translates the meanings of all the dates. You can use the report
to verify my answers below.

Suggested new due date

>When Re-Schedule MRP in Shop Order is a blank field
>does that mean that MRP has not yet hit the relevant items since the shop
>order was released
>or that the original due date is still A-Ok right on good correct valid?

The current due date is either still OK, or the due date has been updated to
match the plan since the last MRP run, or the order itself is new since the last
MRP run.  Basically MRP either agrees with the date, someone changed the date to
agree with MRP, or MRP hasn't yet "expressed an opinion" about the date.
