Backorder Processing Codes

Backorder processing codes as defined within Customer File Maintenance determine how a customer’s backorders will be processing/released when they become available. Set the customer’s backorder processing code on screen 5, line 4 within Customer File Maintenance.

Backorder processing/release happens during order entry (W/new order) or during the running of the backorder release program (BO-rel). It’s typical for a scheduled running of the backorder release program to occur for backorders that exceed a specific value or have been shippable for an extended period of time.

The backorder processing code options are -

Processing code ’1′ will release backorders during the running of the backorder release program (BO-rel) or during order entry (W/new order) if the user specifically opts to do so (NOT blind mode).

Processing code ’2′ will release backorders during order entry (W/new order) if the user specifically opts to do so (NOT blind mode) and NOT during the running of the backorder release program (BO-rel).

Processing code ’3′ will release backorders during the running of the backorder release program (BO-rel) and NOT during order entry (W/new order).

Processing code ’4′ will NOT release backorders during the running of the backorder release program (BO-rel) and NOT during order entry (W/new order). All backorders are held until specifically released by the running of the backorder release program for the specific customer or from backorder edit (#8 in the Order Entry Functions menu).

Processing code ’5′ will release backorders during the running of the backorder release program (BO-rel) or during order entry (W/new order) if the user specifically opts to do so (NOT blind mode). Each backorder will be placed on a separate pick ticket (relative to the original order).

Processing code ’6′ will release backorders during order entry (W/new order) if the user specifically opts to do so (NOT blind mode) and NOT during the running of the backorder release program (BO-rel). Each backorder will be placed on a separate pick ticket (relative to the original order).

Processing code ’7′ FORCES all orders to default to backorder entry. No pick ticket is created even when stock is available. This option is useful when you want to hold all orders from the customer and release on a specific day or time (cycle shipping).

Processing code ’8′ will release backorders during the running of the backorder release program (BO-rel) or during order entry (W/new order) without the user specifically opting to do so (blind mode in affect).

Processing code ’9′ will release backorders during order entry (W/new order) without the user specifically opting to do so (blind mode in affect) and NOT during the running of the backorder release program (BO-rel).

Processing code ’0′ will release backorders during the running of the backorder release program (BO-rel) or during order entry (W/new order) without the user specifically opting to do so (blind mode in affect). Each backorder will be placed on a separate pick ticket (relative to the original order).

Processing code ‘A’ will release backorders during order entry (W/new order) without the user specifically opting to do so (blind mode in affect) and NOT during the running of the backorder release program (BO-rel). Each backorder will be placed on a separate pick ticket (relative to the original order).
