No problem.  We are in the process of converting from 4.05CD to LX and plan to mostly use base order class 15.  It works similar to 4 as far as inventory goes, where the "B" is generated at the 'confirm' process just prior to invoicing (Infor labeled it Pick/Ship Confirm). I don't know if 15 is offered in V6 and probably not a viable solution anyways (we are using it for OLM purposes)...

I ran a quick test on class 5, where you have two confirm steps, i.e., a pick confirm, then a ship confirm.  In my test the "B" was done at the pick confirm, so again, not a viable solution :(.  Unless there is a system or other parameter somewhere where you could have the "B" done at ship confirm for class 5...

Are your shipments with long lags/delays export orders? Just curious...

Good luck Timothy!

Thanks, DeeDee.  We do similar month-end processing.   Our issue is the lag between pick confirm and invoicing, which can take up to a week to complete.

Best regards,

Timothy J Knoebel, Sr.  iSeries/BPCS Administrator

Hi Tim,

We run into the same issue with the timing difference between posting Sales and COGS.  We manage this procedurally, i.e., we have each whse work/clear the BILL660D report (Shipped but Un-invoiced), making sure it is cleared prior to closing each month... 

Occasionally some are missed.  I thought about automating the process at m/e (thru ROBOT RBTSTRLRN command) of billing thru the missed un-billed shipments; then provide the output to billing and the whses to credit and/or adjust the automated billing for the next month...    

Food for thought.


Best Regards,
