I have noticed some problems with the MTHACTE file.  We have only been using it 
for about 2 years and I haven't had the time or energy to try and start 
diagnosing and testing where and why the problems are.  A few things I have 
noticed that cause problems are below.

1.  When Sales is changing the order after the parts have been shipped but 
before they have been invoiced.  What this seems to be doing is creating the 
negative trasaction for the total quantity and $$ value.  Then, after the 
change it creates a record with positive quantity for the entire amount and 
postive sales value for only the balance remaining.  This is creating a net 
sales booking decrease by the shipped dollar amount.

2.  Sometimes when creating /changing an order in PowerLink it doesn't create 
the correct MTHACTE records (Usually the sales dollars are blank).  I have no 
idea why this sometimes occurs.

subject: [MAPICS-L] Bookings Data problem

We are having problems with our bookings reporting. The MTHACTE continually
bad data in it that doesn't make sense and is just wrong. I am having to fix
the data in it on a daily basis. I have talked to Mapics support on this
issue numerous times, as recent as two weeks ago. And the response I get
from them, is that it must of been be a price and/or a quantity change. But
then I point out that we haven't changed the pricing or the quantity for the
order, and yet, there is a MTHACTE entry that either de-books or adds the
dollar amount for a order that hasn't been changed!  Sales, claims that the
order can get de-book in the MTHACTE by just running a inquiry on it.
I just install the latest PCM , level 5132, last weekend. In hopes that
Mapics would have new code for the MTHACTE, but it hasn't help.

What are most companies that are on R7 using to get accurate booking
