I have successfully integrated a similar parcel shipment package (Ascent System from Pitney Bowes that handles UPS and RPS/FedEx Ground). A brief checklist of items: 1) Picklist user-exit extracts required info to send ship-to address to an AS/400 physical file, 2) Ascent System accesses the AS/400 physical file via ODBC, 3) Ascent System performs all required rate calculations for carrier/weight/destination and produces bar-coded parcel label, 4) Shipment Manifest information from Ascent is returned via ODBC to AS/400 physical file, 5) Add-on module to MAPICS COM (unpaid/unsolicited plug for COM Offline Shipment Interface from Custom Systems Corp. According to current newsgroup threads, similar features are to be added to XA6 soon) is used to complete the Shipping cycle. It took awhile to get everything to come together, but it has been a pretty stable operation for over a year and has saved CONSIDERABLE time in transaction processing. regards, Tom Ashworth MIS Manager, Altec Lansing Technologies Inc.
