The purpose of this feature is to allow users to group Ship Via Codes together. At this moment the only area in Elliott that will utilize the new Ship Via Group is the invoice printing functionality in Customer Order Processing. This new option is supported through Customer Order Processing-> Processing-> Print Invoices and Customer Order Processing-> Processing-> Print Invoices-> Print Duplicate Invoices.
To support this functionality, a new file has been added: the Ship Via Group file. This file is maintained through the following menu structure: Accounts Receivable-> Maintenance-> Ship Via Code File-> Grouping.
Once you choose the Grouping menu option, you can perform the standard Add, Change, Delete, and List functions.
1. Ship Via Group - A 2-character field representing the Ship Via Group. F7 search in available in change or delete mode.
2. Description - A 15-character description field.
The List function will provide a list of all of the Ship Via Groups on file:
A new Ship Via Group field has also been added to the Ship Via Code maintenance function.
17. Ship Via Group - A 2-character field representing the Ship Via Group. F7 search is available. The field can be left blank but if a value is entered, it must be on file.
The group field has also been added to the Ship Via Code List.
When running Customer Order Processing-> Processing-> Print Invoices and Customer Order Processing-> Processing-> Print Invoices-> Print Duplicate Invoices, the user will now have the option to press the F4 key when on the Starting Ship Via Code field.
Pressing the F4 key will switch the entry and F7 search to use the Ship Via Group instead of the Ship Via Code.
Pressing F4 again will switch the entry and search back to the Ship Via Code.
The Print Duplicate Invoices application also works the same way.
Once the user completes the print parameter screen, the application will use the information provided to determine which orders are eligible to be printed.
