There is a last sequence number in the IIM file that gets incremented each time 
an ITH records is written.  The highest sequence number in the ITH for a given 
item should match the sequence number in the IIM.  At month end the ITH file is 
resequenced and the and the greatest sequence number for an item is updated 
back to the IIM.  If you have a large volume of transactions this process can 
be lengthly.

We are on 6.02 and we just eliminated the process all together.  We do have 
another problem, the sequence number in the ITH file is too small for the 
number of transactions that we have for an item (99,999 go figure).  We made a 
change to the INV300 to display the transactions by date and time posted rather 
than sequence number.

I hope that this will help.  If you need further assistance contact me offline.
