Jim ... If I understand what you're trying to do, I would do type 5 invoices through Post Ship Billing as your "progress reports" ... these do not affect AR, inventory, or sales statistics. I don't quite understand why your progress report needs to be in the form of an invoice, but this ought to have the desired result. (Actually, I suppose this is one way to keep a "permanent" record of these reports in BPCS, in a consistant format ... the only other way I can think of would be through order notes, which are a little more random.)
