Questions and Answers
 Question 1:  How we view the Blanket Order Number used to create the Sales Order?
 Question 2:  Is it possible to review the quantity that has been released from a particular Blanket Order?
 Question 3:  How can the remaining open quantity for an existing Blanket Order be reviewed?
 Question 4:  How is the line type defaulted when using Blanket Order Release (P420111) or Sales Order Entry (P4210) into the released Sales Order?
 Question 5:  Why is the Quantity Open field not reduced as expected on a Blanket Order after it has been released to a Sales Order?
 Question 6:  Can the Quantity on a Sales Order generated from a Blanket Order be increased?
 Question 7:  Is it possible not to allocate a Sales Order against a Blanket Order which has a Requested Date (effective date) in the future?
 Question 8:  In standard Sales Order Entry (P4210), when using a line type W at the moment of creating the Sales Order the correspondent Work Order will be also created. The same does not happen when creating a Blanket Order. How can a Work Order be created from a Blanket Order?
 Question 9:  When copying a Sales Order that was created from a Blanket Order, the new Sales Order doesn't have the green check mark, or any other notification that it's calling the blanket functionality as it has set in the Processing Options.
 Question 10:  Is there any way to monitor volume or amount balances to determine whether the business partners are in compliance with the contract terms for blanket orders?
 Question 11:  When releasing a blanket order via order entry, either P4210 or P42101, why doesn't the newly created order inherit fields such as the payment terms and freight handling code from the blanket order?
 Question 12:  When a blanket order or quote order is released via P420111 and there are multiple lines with a different carrier on each line, which value will be populated in the carrier field for sales order header of the generated sales order?
 Question 13:  Is it possible to have a substitute item automatically applied when releasing blanket orders to sales orders?
 Question 14:  When a Sales Order is created for a specific Sold To Customer and Item, a green check mark appears indicating a blanket order was found. Why does this occur if there are no open blanket orders for the customer and item? The only open orders were SO and SM orders for this customer and item.
 Question 15:  When trying to release the non-stock lines from P420111 Blanket release program, why does system return error; Item Branch Record does not Exist and Location not in Item Location File?
 Question 16:  Is it possible, when creating a Sales Order using the Sales Blanket Order Release (P420111), to display all open blanket and and quote orders pertaining to the same customer?
 Question 17: Can you change the price on a sales order that was created from a blanket order?
 Question 18: Can the value of the Customer PO field (alias VR01) on the blanket order, be transferred to the sales order that is generated from the blanket?
 Question 19: Shipping partial of a blanket order. How can the remainder be closed?
 Question 20: When manually changing the blanket quantity to match what has been partially released in the QTYT (Qty Ship to Date), which creates a blank open quantity, and manually closing the next status to 999. Should the system reopen the blanket order if an open released sales order is canceled?
 Question 21: We have a blanket order created in the primary unit of measure for the item.  When attempting to release a sales order for the item in a different unit of measure, we get an error indicating Unit of Measure Must Be The Same. Why?
