This is the way we did it.

Some brief notes.

1.) World Ship requires a Day end procedure which links to the main database
on the web and transfers the updates to the local database. We turned on the
option to export to a *.csv file once the updates are applied.

2.) Set up two files on the as/400.  One for the shipment header and the
other for the package details.  A shipment may be comprised of one or more
packages.   If a shipment contains only one package then the tracking number
and the shipment id are the same.  Every package has its own tracking
number, charges, weight etc.

3.)  Use Access 97 (service pack 2) database to link to the shipment header
and package details file via Client Access ODBC drivers (V3R1 Modification
level 2 Service level SF52313).

4.) Set up macros and queries to import the *.csv file right after the
Worldship day end procedure termines.  This process updates the datafiles on
the as/400.

5.) We use Integrator to link these two tables to a Browser screen.  There
users are able to  browse records by order no or purchase order no.

  Once you have the data on the as/400 side, what you have left is just the
presentation side.


I hope this helps.  Let me know.

We are looking to get tracking number, carrier and charges into COM.  Then
we
want to capture data from the order to create Export documents.  We use UPS
On-Line now and will be upgrading to World Ship.  Need to streamline the
duplicate data entry.
