Just for reference to this discussion what is the significance of BPCS customer order types. Hopefully this cut & paste gets to you legibly ... if not, change it to a proportional font again, like Courier, and make it small enough so it not do line wrap.




*** Reserved Order Type Transaction Effects ***


Reserved Affect Affect Affect Accounts Order Inventory Sales Receivable and Type Balances Statistics General Ledger


1 YES YES YES 2 YES YES NO 3 YES NO NO 4 YES NO YES 5 NO NO NO 6 NO NO YES 7 NO YES YES 8 NO YES NO 9 YES NO NO


NOTE: Order types 5, 6, 7, and 8 do not affect inventory balances, however, they do impact MRP and MPS.


In the previous table, the order types are presented vertically, and the three transaction effects form the horizontal index. The YES/NO values indicate which particular order type has been defined to perform which combination of transaction effects.

For example, an order type of "7" may be used for a credit memo where stock is not returned. In this case, you may wish to affect the customer's accounts receivable balance and the item's sales statistics, but you may not want to add the item back to inventory. Order type "7" has been predefined to have these system effects.


In addition to the nine reserved order types, you can use any alphanumeric character as a user-defined code. This flexibility lets you set up codes to identify transactions that are unique to your applications. However, you can only define the meaning of these codes, not the system effects. All user-defined order types affect Inventory, Sales, and Accounts Receivable. That is, user-defined order types have the same system effects as the
     reserved order type "1."
