Part of the response from Don Caviaani is dangerous, in my opinion. The section saying "we assume that ILI is always right". That's usually true, but not always. As a result, we run a program every night that identifies any situation in which ILI, IWI and IIM are different, so we can decide which is correct and take appropriate action. It takes about a minute to analyse each day and another minute to fix anything other than ILI errors.

I can't remember if I ran this by the group before. It has to do with whether or not I leave the facility field blank on INV300, and which files/fields the program subsequently uses to figure the MTD and YTD quantities.

I have some notes written down - but don't know if they are accurate? My note says that if I leave the facility code blank, the MTD and YTD fields COME RIGHT FROM the IIM file itself. However, if I fill in a facility code, the MTD and YTD data which shows on the screen actually comes from the ILI and IWI files instead.

We are getting different numbers (on some part numbers) when alternating inquiries between the blank and the filled in facility codes??

Don, that's likely the same results for everyone. We adapted INV972
(Update IIM from ILI) to run every night (available on the SYS File
Reorg Menu). We adopted the attitude that the ILI will always be right
and that if any of the higher-level files get out of synch they will
balance over night.
