Lance, If you're using IFM, this may not apply, but if you're using the legacy Accounting Management AP, this is likely your problem: When your AP group enters an invoice, there's a flag that they set to either P for partial or C for complete to indicate whether the invoice covers everything or not. The default is C. If the invoice is processed with the C and the quantities are such that MAPICS thinks the order is fully received, then the order gets set to a closed status, magically and nearly invisibly. There can be a bit of human nature involved here - I've had clerks tell me that they KNOW they changed the C to a P while I was looking at the database journal entry that clearly showed that they hadn't. "There must be a bug in the MAPICS program, even if neither you nor MAPICS Support can duplicate it." OY! We ended up modifying the default to P - and still had the problem from time to time. IMO, MAPICS should have altered this process years ago to make it more straightforward and less error prone, but they didn't listen to me then and probably wouldn't now.
