The backorder processing code is set in the customer record and determines how backorders will be processed/released for the account. Below is the list of available backorder processing codes.
Codes 1, 8, and 0 “bo-rel or new order only” mean backorders will be processed/released with a backorder release or new order.
Codes 2, 9, and A “with new order only” mean backorders will ONLY be processed/released with a new order and will NOT be processed/released from a scheduled backorder release.
If you choose “Blind” you will not have to manually import the backorder during order entry. The backorders will automatically be imported.
You may specify that backorders release on a separate ticket if the customer requires it. This can be done with a backorder processing code (codes 5, 6, 0, or A) or using a flag on screen 5 in field 5 in the customer file maintenance program.
