Symptoms

Have setup the maximum quantity of an item to fit into a container using the Container-Item Relationships form.

However, when Auto-Pack is run in the Shipping Transactions Form, system is not splitting the lines into multiple LPN's based on the ordered quantity.

Example: 
Order has quantity of 480 of item X.
The item X is setup in the Container-Item Relationships form for container item with a maximum quantity of 240.
When Auto-Pack is executed, it only creates an LPN for the full quantity of 480 rather the creating two LPN's with a quantity of 240 in each.
Expectation is that Auto-pack should split the lines into multiple LPN's based on the ordered quantity.
