Jeff, you probably won't like this, but we do this here.  How we do it is
we sell it by the inch (or ml in this case).  And we charge by the inch.
We cut it to length, box or bag it (depending on the part), and charge for
what was shipped.

It works OK, the customer orders how much he/she wants, and
shipping/packout handles it.  Pricing is no problem, they pay for what they

I don't see how lot control would be impacted doing that scenario, either.

   I am working with a customer that has a pkg situation.   they sell the
   same item no. in various pkgs, ie 1 ml, 5 ml, 10, ml etc....    they
   have lot control and are using all 10 characters,  any ideas of how we
   defferientiate the pkg size would be appreciated....additional part
   is not an option....we'd like to avoid using locations as pkg info......

   any ideas would be integrator solutions with a tag along
   to SLQNTY  sounds like a lot of wrap code, we'd like to avoid....

   If you have solved this or have ideas, we'd like to hear from you....
