We are getting ready to go "LIVE" on Mapics 6.0 April 2, and something has come
up that we do not have an answer for.

In MAPICS, it appears that one must, in the customer master, flag whether
Partials are acceptable or not. This is fine, but it appears that there is no
way, on a per order basis, to tell Mapics that on a particular order, partials
or not acceptable.  

The majority of our customers are flagged as "Partials O.K.", but we VERY often
have certain orders that need to be booked as "No Partials". (an example would
be a board as line item one, memory as line two, disk on chip as line three,
etc.) 

The customer cannot use any of the product if just one of the lines are not
present, so in this case, the order needs to be flagged as "NO PARTIALS".  

If the same customer orders 10,000 boards to build product and we have only
6,000, we would want to send off the 6,000, so as not to cause a "line down"
situation.

I think there must be some others out there that have run into this scenario
also. If so what do you do? Am I missing something???
