I am using consolidation of invoices. 
Set up customers is very important and still working on 1 bug.

Basically the 1st order you despatch that day (based on system date) if you 
consolidate by day, is given an invoice number and a record is written to a 
file.  I will check the name and advise later.  Next order for same customer 
despatched on that same day, is given the same invoice number based on a chain 
to the consolidation file. Unless there is an ovveride on certain fields. You 
can not print the invoice same day as it is in "HOLD" status until system date 
changes (again for DAY consolidation). Next morning you can print the invoice 
and start despatching next orders.  Non consolidated customers are not affected 
and can be despatched in between with no problem.

I have not tried week or period consolidation, but I had a mod made to 
consolidate "on request".  So on the same day we can despatch several orders to 
1 invoice, print the invoice which closes the record in consolidation file and 
then start despatching same customer, next orders which would be assigned new 
invoice number.

Hope this helps.
