I can give you the source code for how we load our OFFSHIP files.   Our
process is as follows:

1.  The users scan all the picking transactions and the item pick data
(with locations and quantity) is stored in a holding file.  We also create
SLALLO records for the items that were picked (we don't discretely allocate
inventory at order entry time, but once it's picked, it SHOULD be!).

2.  At the end of the day, we get the UPS and FedEx Ground freight shipment
data and charges, match them up with the holding file, and build the
OFFSHIP records.

3.  Then we call the OFFSHIP process, order by order.   We also load all
the tracking number information.  And since MAPICS only supports ONE
tracking number per shipment (and we can have a LOT more than that), we
create comments with all the tracking numbers in them as order comments.

Want the code?   I can post it on our user group site.   The tracking
number load program is already there.

Go to:   for what I have so far.

If you want, I can add the other programs, too.

To the list,
I am starting testing of the Offline Shipping enhancement and want to find
out from the "veterans" if there are any gotchas from errors in the
documentation.  I think I may have already found one or two.

1)    The OSAAREP error flag should be a "0", not a blank as the SH14652
document states
2)    The OSAAREP company should be filled, it is a required field.

Anything else that I need to know about?
