Thanks, David for your response.  Your answers are what I expected.  The one place I worked that had BPCS used customized code to delay the generation of the 'B' transaction to invoicing time.  When we installed the barcode system, it generated the 'B' transaction earlier so we had to fix it to not generate it at all.  We were on 405cd BPCS and I was interested to see if there were any improvements in this area.  Thanks for the verification.

Hi Tim,

The brief answers to your questions are:-

1.	No an order cannot be unconfirmed after Pick Confirm as the order
line and stock has already been reduced. The only way back is a Credit Note and Adjustment to put the stock back.

2.	No the 'B' Transaction is posted at Pick Confirm whether you're
using Ship Confirm or not.

3.	Yes numerous other BPCS users have had the same problem. Without
customizing BPCS the most effective resolution is to utilise a bar-coding and scanning solution which controls the picking process and can generate the 'B' transaction as late in the process as you wish, even on loading pallets onto transport. Visit www.aidc-solutions.co.uk or www.transitionworksoftware.com for bar-coding solutions which are fully integrated with BPCS.

Subject: [BPCS-L] BPCS 6.1 - Switch from Pick Confirm to Ship Confirm

We are on BPCS 6.1 and currently use pick confirm as the last step before invoicing.  Our Finance department has an issue with this because the 'B'
transaction is generated at pick confirm.  They would like the 'B'
transaction to be generated at invoicing instead of pick confirm.  The would accept the 'B' transaction being generated at ship confirm, which will be closer to invoicing than pick confirm.  I know about changing the order class code to '5' to activate the ship confirm function.  Some questions:

1.       Can an order be unconfirmed once it is pick confirmed?  For some
unexplainable reason, our shipping department continues to pick confirm order lines that we don't have some or all of the item ordered.

2.       Can the 'B' transaction be generated at ship confirm time instead
of pick confirm time without customization?

3.       Has anyone else run into this issue and if so, how did you resolve
it?


Best regards,
