We also use the "mark the item for deletion" as an active/inactive option (STAT35 in INP35) It will show up as blank or we set most of out reports to not = to (1) to disclude all inactive items. We are also leary of deleting the items because the history tends to disappear. Most of the standard S21 reports do not have any option to include only those items that are not flagged for deletion, so sometimes during a physical inventory using count sheets or valuation reports you tend to get a report showing every item that you have setup. Would be interested in hearing if others have used diff approaches Kevin Potter The Crown Group -----Original Message----- From: system21-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:system21-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of Bill.Geissinger@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Monday, June 20, 2005 10:50 AM To: steven_fuller@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx Cc: system21@xxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: Fw: [SYSTEM21] Inactive Items Steve, The user had competed a Physical Inventory and had several part numbers show up on reports that are no longer active. I checked the INP35 file and they have no records that have a value in the ACTF35 field. Is there an existing option where they can maintain this value? Bill steven_fuller@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx 06/20/2005 10:28 AM To: Bill.Geissinger@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx cc: Subject: Fw: [SYSTEM21] Inactive Items Bill, Define inactive and where do you want it inactive? But for the most part your answer is NO. You can mark an item for deletion in Inventory but if you delete it you will most likely loose the history. For a production booking - you can only delete the route and then no more possibility off booking. We have barcode processing and all bookings default to route "1" and they cannot not change it. So, i copy the route 1 to a "D" and then delete the route "1" route. Steve Steven Fuller Manager of I.S.
