Edit lines

Select this check box to change transfer order lines according to the update principle selected. Only lines with a positive ship quantity are displayed. You can, for example, change the shipment quantity or delete the line overall. You can also reserve and pick the line by using the options available in the Inventory menu. If you select the Edit lines check box, you can edit the transfer order lines before they are updated. The line's inventory dimensions cannot be altered unless you have selected the Explode lines check box.

Clear this check box to ship the transfer order line only according to the principle specified in the Update list. This is useful for the Available quantity setting. If you select the Edit lines check box, the available quantity for transfer is frozen at the time the parameter is selected. This will happen even if the available quantity changes in the period up to the execution of the shipment. If the Edit lines check box is cleared, the available quantity is that quantity that is available at the time the shipment is executed.

Explode lines

This check box is only available if you have selected the Edit lines check box. Select this check box to explode transfer order lines according to the inventory transactions. You can modify the dimensions location, batch, and serial number for the order transfer line. If, for example, you make a reservation on three serial numbers, ABC-1, ABC-2 and ABC-3, the exploded line will contain the reserved dimensions. You can then replace ABC-2 by selecting a new serial number in the Serial number list.

NoteNote

The new serial number will not apply until the shipment has been updated.

When you select the Explode lines check box, you cannot modify the inventory dimensions if the items in the lines have already been picked.
