    MFG/PRO eB2.1 Service Pack 1
    Service Pack 1 for MFG/PRO eB2.1 includes all ECOs closed between January 23, 2004, and May 24, 2004. A few significant changes introduced with ECOs that modify product features are highlighted in this section.
    Consignment Inventory Enhancements
    This service pack includes updates to both Customer Consignment Inventory and Supplier Consignment Inventory.
    Customer Consignment Inventory
    The Customer Consignment Inventory module (7.18) has been expanded to enable the reversal of consigned inventory that has been issued. The user can now correct erroneous shipments or reverse portions of a previous shipment involving consigned inventory by processing a negative shipment quantity on consigned sales order lines attached to shippers.
    Previously, once issued, only the entire shipment could be undone or reversed.
    The system now provides a systematic negative consignment transaction that enables the correct inventory transactions to occur without losing traceability or introducing security risks.
    This service pack includes the following expanded functions:
    When you enter a negative quantity in a sales order shipper/shipment function for a consigned sales order line, the system now prompts you to indicate whether the negative quantity is a:
    Correction to a previous shipment
    Return of inventory from a consigned location
    This value is stored in the system and used during the inventory shipment confirmation process to accurately handle the inventory quantity and transactions.
    When the inventory being returned involves a previous consigned inventory transaction, the consigned inventory quantities are reduced accordingly and the system creates reversing consignment inventory transactions.
    When a negative shipper or container line is a correction or return involving consigned inventory, the system generates ISS-TR, ISS-RCT, and CN-SHIP inventory transaction history records for the negative quantity. This reverses the original transaction and returns inventory to stock.
    When a negative shipper or container line involving consigned inventory is not processed as a correction or return, the system generates a credit invoice to the customer for the negative quantity using the standard ISS-SO inventory transaction.
    When unconfirming a shipper with a negative consigned inventory quantity, the system reverses the transaction by creating inventory transactions for positive quantities.
    Messages used in sales order shipments for negative quantities on consigned lines have been added to menu functions where shippers, pre-shippers, and containers are created, including:
    SO Container Maintenance (7.7.7)
    Pre-Shipper/Shipper Workbench (7.9.2)
    Sales Order Shipper Maintenance (7.9.8)
    Usage programs prompt for an effective date.
    Additionally, a new program, Shipper Usage Create (7.18.19), lets you manually consume inventory by shipper number. The system updates the bill of lading with the last shipper consumed.
    Supplier Consignment Inventory
    The Supplier Consignment Inventory module (5.18) has been enhanced to allow automatic corrections to consignment inventory.
    Previously, a correction had to be made by manually reversing the issue transaction, performing an adjustment to return inventory to its consigned status, and creating a memo voucher.
    This service pack includes the following enhanced features:
    When a negative quantity is processed during a function where consigned inventory is consumed, the system returns inventory to its respective consigned or non-consigned site and location to the extent that it has not been reported as used.
    In addition to a standard MFG/PRO issue transaction for the negative quantity, negative quantities processed as consigned reversals now create RCT-PO and CN-ISS transactions. MFG/PRO transfers the quantity back to consigned inventory.
    When a reversal is processed, supplier-consigned inventory is increased.
    When reversals of consigned inventory occur, the system creates a GL transaction that debits the Consigned Inventory account and credits the Consigned Inventory Offset account.
    The system now automatically creates a negative pending voucher for the supplier whose consigned inventory is reinstated as unused. This offsets the positive pending voucher created when the material was first consumed.
    The system excludes reported usage records for reversals—eliminating the risk of double payment for consigned inventory when original usage was reported and paid for prior to a reversal transaction.
    Negative consignment issue transactions can be created using the menu functions listed in the following table.
    Menu Title
    Menu Title
    Transfer–Single Item

    VAT Registration Codes
    To support the addition of 10 countries to the European Union (EU) on May 1, 2004, new value-added tax (VAT) registration codes are now validated when they are associated with customer, supplier, and end-user addresses.
    The following table lists the new formats. They are built as follows:
    The first two letters are the country code.
    A is letters A-Z only.
    9 is 0–9 only.
    VAT Registration Format
    Cyprus 1
    Czech Republic
    Slovak Republic
    For Cyprus, the last character must be a letter.
    A new utility program, EU Expansion Intrastat Utility (, utieup.p), has been added to create order Intrastat data for open sales and purchase orders—including scheduled orders—for customers in new EU member nations.
    Similarly, for customers in current EU nations trading with new EU members, the utility updates existing order Intrastat data with newly defined values for commodity code, Intrastat item, and country of origin.
    The utility includes an Update field so you can initially run it in simulation mode.
    Sales and Use Tax Interface
    A new Zero Tax/Exemptions as Non-Taxable field has been added to Tax Interface Control ( This lets you control how taxes set up for individual jurisdictions are handled in MFG/PRO based on Quantum Tax Decision Maker (TDM) information when tax exemptions or zero tax rates are involved.
    When taxes are set up in Quantum based on VQ-10, VQ-20, VQ-30, and VQ-40 tax types, set this field to Yes to record the following as non-taxable in MFG/PRO:
    Taxable lines with exemptions or exceptions
    Lines with zero tax rate
    Previously, under the same circumstances, the non-taxable information from the TDM was always recorded as taxable in MFG/PRO. Leave the new field set to No to continue using this logic.
    PO Shipper Receipts
    A new Convert Container/Items for Sales field has been added to Purchasing Control (5.24). A prompt with the same label displays in PO Shipper Receipt (5.13.20) when all of the following are true:
    The Purchasing Control field is Yes.
    PO containers have been created manually using PO Container Maintenance (5.13.13).
    If using Enterprise Material Transfer (EMT), the order type is TRANSHIP.
    When you respond Yes to the prompt when confirming the PO shipper, the system copies the container structure as a sales order shipper container with the same ID as the received container.
    This new feature supports a business model in which the company receives a containerized shipment from its supplier for transshipment to its end customer. By setting the field to Yes during receipt, the company can simply attach the original container ID to their sales order shipment.
    Service/Support Management
    A new Revenue Type field has been added to Contract Deferred Income Report ( Enter one of the following values to limit the report output as needed.
    Blank (the default): Contracts are selected regardless of revenue type.
    A: Only accrued-revenue contracts are selected.
    C: Only cash-basis contracts are selected.
    D: Only deferred-revenue contracts are selected.
    EDI ECommerce
    EDI ECommerce updates added by this service pack include the following.
    ECommerce Functions
    ECommerce Function Maintenance (35.15.21) and ECommerce Function Copy (35.17.2) have been modified to increase the number of internal names that can be assigned to user-defined transformation functions.
    Although the user specifies a name for each function when creating it, the system assigns its own name. Even if unneeded user-defined functions are deleted, the system cannot reuse the internal names. Previously, the system was limited to 999 internal names, which were in the format edfct999.p. An error displayed when the maintenance or copy program attempted to create more functions.
    Now, the naming convention has been changed, and up to 999,999 internal names can be associated with user-defined functions.
    Additionally, a new utility, Renumber Internal Function Name (, utedtrf.p), has been added to rename existing procedures, remove gaps in the sequence resulting from deleted functions, and convert references in existing code to match the new internal names.
    Example: Existing functions are assigned the internal names edfct001.p and edfct004.p; functions that used edfct002.p and edfct003.p were deleted. The new utility reassigns the remaining functions to internal names ed000001.p and ed000002.p and updates references with the new names.
    Warning Messages
    A new Show Warning Messages field has been added to the following programs:
    Shipment ASN Export (35.4.1)
    Invoice Export (35.4.3)
    Purchase Order Acknowledgment (35.4.5)
    Packing List Export (35.4.15)
    When this field is Yes, the system displays warning messages stating that some documents were skipped during export because of trading partner parameter setup data. Otherwise, the system skips the documents without displaying the messages.
    General Ledger
    New selection criteria ranges are now available in Recalculate acd_det Totals (36.25.39, utacdfix.p) that let you further restrict which totals are recalculated based on the year and financial period.
    Additionally, this utility has been enhanced to improve performance.
