What I have seen so far on the postings is that there does not appear to be
a way within vanilla BPCS to do this.  With programming help I can do most
anything whether it is populating GBH/GBL or creating a separate
concatenated field through a trigger program for macro-able events to avoid

George, I like you have seen this before but it really hasn't been a big
issue because we have either been in multiple libraries or have a very
centralized accounting department that they wanted a single book.  I also
have not submitted an E-BMR.  What I would like to see SSA do is carry the
subsystem event determination reason code forward as a key for the event
setup.  That way simply doing a macro-able event on warehouse would allow
you to have multiple events with the same event id, same subsystem origin,
but different reason codes, therefore different ledgers, book, etc.
