WE ARE ON 6.1.  WE USE THE "DEFAULT LOCATION/WAREHOUSE" FOR CERTAIN SELECT
ITEMS, BUT BECAUSE THE MAJORITY OF OUR USERS DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO THE ITEM
MASTER, WE BUILD THIS DESCRIPTION INTO THE ITEM DESCRIPTION.

FOR INSTANCE.

BOTTLE SS 201P*****FESTOR

FESTOR IS THE DEFAULT LOCATION WE WISH THE BOTTLE STORED IN.  WHEN THE USER
SEES THE ****, THEY KNOW THAT MEANS A DEFAULT LOCATION FOLLOWS.

Subject: Re: Stock Locators


Sometimes I am dense.

My version (4.0.03) has the fields IIM.ILOC (Default Location) and
IWI.WILOC (Default Location).  Isn't this exactly what they are supposed
to be used for?

Our materials department would like to enter a stock locator for all
part numbers.  This locator will be a reference field only which would
be used for barcode scanning and various reports.  The purpose of the
Stock Locator:  Receiving will know which Aisle, Row and Shelf in which
to place Stock and the material handlers and cycle counter will know
where stock is stored.  We will not manage inventory in and out of these
locations.  Materials controls Facility Planning Data and this would be
the ideal place for this information as materials may enter/update the
locator as required.  The locator number would be 5 characters and
alpha-numeric.

Some of the ideas that we currently considered:  Item Notes but this
area is controlled by Engineering.  Drawing/formula field, controlled by
Engineering and already in use.  List/Catalog No in the Item Master but
this field will be used by Sales in the future.

Is there another company that uses something similar to this now?  Does
anyone have any suggestions on where I could store this data?
