Has nothing to do with the BBL, packaging is added into the ECL file before
the BBL is created. The problem is the packaging added into the ECL has the
wrong quantity of packaging, based on the original ordered quantity not the
confirmed pick/shipped quantity.

In earlier versions of BPCS, the ECL record exists long before pick/ship.
It has fields for both original quantities, and what was actually confirmed.

So your problem is with BBL which communicates from ship to invoicing.

Subject: [BPCS-L] LX 8.03.00 Packaging Calculations

We are using 8.03.00 and OLM. Loads are created up to a week in advance.
We have OLM600 packaging issue set to '2' (issue and track), customer master
and ship to have invoice packaging set to '1' (CMINPK,STINPK). We create
loads 7-10 days in advance and it appears the packaging is created (LCH) at
the time the load is created and the packaging is based on the initial
product load quantity. Many times when we confirm the load lines we change
original load quantities. When the ECL and BBL records are created from the
pick/ship confirm the packaging lines are based on the original load
quantities not the confirmed quantities which creates erroneous packing
lists and invoices. Any assistance is appreciated.
