-- Problem Statement:

When trying to Split Ship Units from one Shipment to a parallel Shipment, if the Order Source Location has a Load Point but the Order also has a Plan From Location, a Java.Lang.Nullpointer Error is Shown.


An Order Release has a Source Location 'X',
The Order Release has a Load Point of 'X1' set for Location 'X'.
The Order Release also has a Plan From Location of 'Y'.

When planning Location 'Y' should be used because the Plan From Location overrides the Source Location.

The Order Release is planned and 2 shipments (1 and 2) are built, both originating from Location 'Y'.

The null pointer error is encountered when moving Ship Units from Shipment 1 to Shipment 2.

To move Ship Units from Shipment 1 to Shipment 2 carry out the following steps:

1 - Locate and select Shipment 1.
2 - Click on Actions > Change Shipment Route > Split Shipment.
3 - In the next screen click on 'Ship Unit', then 'OK'.
4 - In the next screen select 'Split to Parallel Shipment' and entered the ID of the second Shipment.
5 - Set 'Split Amount Off' = 1 (located to the far right of the screen.)
6 - Click on 'OK'.
7 - In the next screen click on 'OK'.
8 - The Null Pointer Error is displayed.
