Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The customer is using a category set in ERP that are assigned to multiple parent items (category codes), a one-to-many relationship. These items are common parts.
There is a check box that allows an item to be assigned to multiple category codes (have multiple parents) within the same category set on the ERP side.
(Inventory/Setup/Items/Categories/Category Sets : 'Allow Multiple Item Category Assignment')

When a planned order is generated, the Planner's Workbench will show a planned order for each category, each with the same order number.
The user can then query the PWB based on the category to avoid seeing multiple planned orders all with the same order number.
However, when viewing the planned order in the Horizontal Plan and double clicking the order, the PWB will automatically show all the categories.  This gives the planner's the impression that there are multiple orders and leads to confusion.

The request is to filter out the planned order by category when double clicking the horizontal plan.
