It has been a long time since I worked with version 405CD but I don't think
there are too many differences between picking at 6.0.02.

At 6.0.02 you can un-pick orders by running Pick-Confirm with the line qtys
set to 0 and the 'Drop' flag (if applicable) set to N.  You can do this by
customer and it will require manual intervention to delete the allocations
but this will leave all the files in order.

Hope this is of some help.
