Thanks anyway - I figured it out, with help from MRP209

It means we should kill the Shop Order because the Customer Requirement has 
evaporated - this order should not even be on my new report.

It means it is recommending an adjustment in due date, because either the 
Customer Requirements have shifted, or the Factory is not doing things in the 
right sequence - I should use this date instead of the launch date in my 
SFC230 clone.

It means this shop order is now overdue - I should print the original due 
date & flag it as overdue.
