Reject reasons are the reasons why a receiving is rejected. The receivings clerk needs to know valid reasons for refusing a shipment or for rejecting part of it. With a set of standardized reasons on file, the clerk or the data entry operator who processes the receiving will be able to choose the most appropriate reason.
When the operator specifies a quantity rejected for a receiving, the screen will prompt him for the entry of a Reject Reason Code. The operator then has the option of entering a specific code or of reviewing the codes on file and selecting one of those that are displayed. The entry of a reject reason, however, is optional.
The Reject Reason Code File Maintenance application allows these codes to be defined, maintained and listed.
Select Reject Reason Code File from the pull down P/O Maintenance window. The following screen will then be displayed:
The following options are available:
- Select the desired mode from the Reject Reason Code File menu bar
- Enter the data requested on the screen
To return to the menu bar, press the ESC or F10 key. To leave this application, press X for EXIT when positioned at the menu bar.
