O/E changing shipping date on multiple line items

O/E changing shipping date on multiple line items

O/E changing shipping date on multiple line items

Hi all, we are using Progression 7.600.300c - SQL.  Our question is, in Order Entry, is there a way to globally change the date on multiple line items?  For example, if a customer calls to push out the shipping date, the O/E people need to change the date on the order header and then each individual line one at a time.  For a 43 line order this is time consuming.  I searched on the Macola Customer Portal 'know-how' base and found that the same question had been asked of them in 2004, but no response was ever posted.  Does anyone know a way to do this, or have any suggestions for some other type of workaround?  Thanks in advance for any assistance.  Julie B.

RE: O/E changing shipping date on multiple line items

You could write a SQL script to do this.  Keep in mind if you use MRP you will need to regen MRP to get accurate results, regardless if you manually change these or use a SQL script.

Shipping Lead Times is another consideration.

Be a very simple MSAccess application to create as well.  Two input fields (order number drop-down and a calendar for the new date) and a button to execute the update.

Thank you both for your response.  It confirms my suspicions.  I really appreciate the additional info on the effect this would have on MRP.  This gives me all the information I need!  Thanks once again, Julie B.
