About the Fields

As order detail lines for special distribution or standard inventory items are entered, the Order Entry task selectively adjusts the committed quantities in the inventory master file. The decision to commit inventory is based on the item’s scheduled shipping date and the commitment date entered in the global defaults at the beginning of order entry. If the scheduled shipping date falls on or before the commitment date, the inventory items are committed and shown on the picking list for the order. Otherwise, the items remain uncommitted until selected by this task or individually committed in the Order Entry and/or Invoice Entry tasks.
