We do have big lags between pick confirm and the actual shipment of the order due to procedural issues - the problem areas have been identified but no movement in shipping department to rectify the issues.  So now the system must be modified to accommodate the procedural issues instead of fixing the personnel issues.  Go figure.  Thanks DeeDee.

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!
