Looking at this from a programmer's point of view...
If the numbers are EXACTLY the same, why do you need them in the cross
reference file? Since the number is already on the IIM and valid for all
order entry and manufacturing purposes, it would seem redundant to me to
have the information in 2 places.
Is there some functionality missing by just having the number in the IIM
and not the EIX?

Just curious!

Re: [BPCS-L] Customer Item # & your Item # the same ORD150

We are on 8.2.01 -- This version will let you enter them - but when you go
to enter an order or EDI - it cannot find the part, like it does not
exist. Infor says can not have internal and customer item number be the
same - if they are, EIX is skipped and IIM is looked at. They have no
work around nor any plans for one.

This does not make any sense to me! On a couple of customers it is
critical that the number is the same. Does anyone have a work around?

One of our customers bought us out - we are now making some of their parts
in one of our factories - the plant has to deal with their engineering
group on issues for these parts - need to speak at least same part number
language - and we "sell" parts to them - someday will probably merge
systems - for so many reasons we need these to be the same.

Why can't the Customer's item# and our item # be the same in ORD150?
