Ship confirmation writes to EWR (pick work file)  like pick confirmation   and won't generate the B transaction until ORD570B (Pick confirmation update batch job). So you have to run the pick confirmation regardless to  get all the updates properly unless it is customized. 

As for un confirming the pick confirm. You can deselect it before the F6 key (Accept)  is pressed by using action 12 I believe to de-select the picks.  Once you hit the F6  it activates ORD570B for the updates.

Another way is to zero conform the lines by entering zeroes for the pick lines that you don't want to pick confirm. That way those lines will not get pick confirmed.

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,

Timothy J Knoebel, Sr. iSeries/BPCS Administrator
