This option is not supported if the item is configurable and option priced. When using SFC500 it only asks for and populates the order number. Assuming your shop order due dates match the requested ship dates and quantities, that should be fine for planning and production. MRP will advise you when/if something changes on any of the order lines. Regards, Larry .
