Questions and Answers
 Line Types and Inventory Interface
 Question 1: When the Process tab of P4312 is set to update the SD line to 580, why do the freight lines with N inventory interface not get updated too?
 Question 2:  Do Inventory Interface D sales transactions update the Item History file?
 Shipments, Receipts and Receipts Routing
 Question 1: Is Intransit accounting supported with Direct Ship orders?
 Question 2: If a partial receipt is done for an OD order and the remainder of the line is closed with option 7, what status is used for the next/last status on the purchase order line and related sales order line?
 Question 3: Can the cost of the SD order be updated by landed costs applied to the OD order at the time of receipt?
 Blanket/Quote Release
 Question 1: Can a Direct Ship Sales Order (SD) release a quantity from a Quote (SQ) or Blanket (SB) Sales Order?
 Errors and Warnings
 Question 1: Why is the ‘Blanks Invalid’ error issued against some item numbers when raised as Direct Ship Orders?
 Question 2: Is there a way to display an error message or a warning  on a direct ship sales order when a minimum order value is not met for a supplier for the purchase order being generated?
 Question 3: Why are we receiving the Status Flow Not Setup Error (0425) when entering a Direct Ship Order after exiting the detail line during Sales Order Entry (P4210)
 Making Changes
 Question 1: Why does the system create a new OD instead of simply adding new lines to the existing OD?
 Question 2: Why do updates to fields like requested or cancel date on the SD order header and detail fields only update the OD detail fields and not update the OD header fields?
 Question 3: Can an override address be used on the SD after the order has already been entered?
 Question 4: When doing a partial receipt of an OD the Next Status (NXTR) is getting updated to 280, this does not match the P4312 processing options, where is this status coming from?
 Question 5: Can the pricing UOM on the SD be updated and will the change update the OD? 
 Related Order Information
 Question 1: Is there a way to create a separate OD purchase order for each line in an SD sales order with line type D?  Normally, an SD order with more than one line creates a single related OD purchase order.
 Question 2: How is F4211.RLLN (Related PO/SO Line Number) populated?
 Question 3: Can the Purchasing Unit Cost be used for order types other than Direct Ship Order?
 Question 4: Is it possible to enter multiple sales orders for various customers and then generate a single PO which would be directly shipped to the various customer ship to addresses?
 Processing Options
 Question 1: Why is the value populated in Defaults Tab Processing Option #6 (Line Number Increment) ignored when creating the Direct Ship Purchase Order (OD)?
 Question 2: Why doesn't the Display Tab Processing Option #1 (Display or Hide Cost Fields) hide Purchase Order Unit Cost (UNCS) and Purchase Order Extended Cost (ECST) fields displayed during entry of a Direct Ship Sales Order?
 Question 3: Why is an OD line showing as Taxable "N" on the purchase order when the "D" line type shows Include in Tax1 = Y and item branch record for the item show as Purchasing Taxable?
 Question 1: Can the Inventory Commitment Preference be used for Direct Ship orders?
 Hold Codes
 Question 1: When a credit hold is applied to a Direct Ship order (SD), will the OD be put on the same hold?
 Question 2: When a hold code is reapplied to a Direct Ship order (SD), is the hold reapplied to the OD?
 Question 3: Occasionally, when a direct ship sales order (SD) is released from credit hold, the related purchase order (OD) remains on hold.  The F4209 record shows this order as released, but F4301.HOLD is still populated with the hold code.  Why does this happen, and how can the direct ship purchase order (OD) be completely released from credit hold?
