Hi Jim, We found that by using order type 7, orders could be tracked through the regular system, but inventory would not be effected by shipping .333/.333/.334 to finish it up. We do this all the time and we have Open order query's just for these orders which in our business are Tooling. 1/3 upon placing the order, 1/3 upon tool completion, and the final due on submission of spec-conforming samples. Hope this helps, Paul -----Original Message----- From: bpcs-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:bpcs-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of Jim Barry Sent: Monday, May 12, 2003 9:01 AM To: SSA's BPCS ERP System Subject: BPCS 4.05 Progress Payments...How to ??
