Most all CODIS clients are taking advantage of the IC-COM (Inter CODIS Communications) protocol that allows CODIS clients to share inventory. In the past, inventory sharing was a problem when one or more locations were not shipping product in a timely manner due to physical inventory. CODIS has added an “Inventory In-progress” flag to the warehouse options codes record that will pass back a message stating “Inventory in Progress – No Information Available”. Here’s how and where to set the flag when your location is doing inventory.
In the Codes File Editor (70/50 from the main CODIS menu), type “whse” <enter>. Type “C” <enter> for change mode. Type the warehouse code of the warehouse that’s doing inventory and press <enter>. Type “WHSE-OPTION1″ <enter>. Type “13″ <enter>. Type “Y” <enter>. Now press <enter> to save your changes. Here’s what the record should look like when you’ve turned the “Inventory In=progress” flag on.
Change the “Inventory In-progress” flag back to “N” when your physical inventory has been completed and you’re back to shipping orders.
