    Fixes for AIM 3.0.5
    The following fixes and improvements were made in AIM 3.0.5:
    General improvements and corrections were made, including:
    Issues when confirming tasks on the RF were corrected.
    The Cancel function (F4 key) now operates correctly on the RF, letting you properly exit programs.
    RF functions now correctly clear the screen before starting a transaction confirmation.
    RF locking issues were resolved.
    RF Repick functionality now operates correctly with kits.
    AIM now correctly calculates the due date for scheduled orders.
    You can now repick for kanban replenishment tasks.
    All functionality for overstock replenishment operations is implemented and available.
    RF menus now reside under menu 80.26.
    The domain clause was added to MFG/PRO tables for AIM programs in eB2.1.
    AIM installation was improved for non-US English languages.
    RF Next Task (1.1) now:
    Picks up tasks in a sequence. Previously, tasks were picked up randomly for the same priority.
    No longer gives Progress TranD errors or errors regarding runtime parameters when warehouse staff confirm cycle count tasks.
    No longer displays inventory conflict errors and correctly merges received inventory into existing inventory with the same reference and status when users receive a PO for which there was a partial receipt and Keep from Status set is No in Internal Routing Maintenance (80.2.5).
    RF Select Task (1.2):
    Now recognizes the reference associated with the task when the keyboard is used to type the reference instead of using the arrow keys. Previously, the system did not recognize the reference.
    Now lets you access a task that is soft assigned to another user. Also, all issues were corrected when a user attempts to access a task started by another user.
    No longer displays tasks locked by pre-shipper select task and RF batch picking operations. Previously, locked tasks appeared although users could not select them.
    No longer displays transfer error messages when you transfer a pallet to a single item location and the pallet contains multiple lot numbers for the same item.
    Now correctly displays the values in the Item and Lot/Serial fields and displays the complete value for the Reference field when transferring the item from one location to another. Previously, the value for Item and Lot/Serial displayed as blank and the value for Reference was displayed incorrectly.
    No longer displays system error messages when Check Digit is set to Yes in Warehouse Maintenance (80.1), and the user transfers a pallet from one location to another location.
    No longer displays transfer error messages when staff transfer pallets to a single item location and the pallet contains multiple lot numbers for the same item.
    No longer transfers inventory to the destination location when users cancel the transaction using CTRL-C.
    Now displays an Inspection Pending error and prevents transfer of pallets when an inventory inspection is invoked through Sample Inspection Maintenance (80.22.1).
    RF Location Audit (1.4):
    Now lets users exit by selecting the End function on Reference and Alternate-UM fields during a cycle count on an empty location. Previously, users could not exit the RF without a correct entry or using an abort function.
    Now changes the status of an item status from Fail to Available when the cycle count is finished for a given item with a quantity equal to the quantity available. Previously, the status remained as Fail.
    No longer lets users enter an invalid UM. Previously, when users entered a non-existing UM, the system created a transaction.
    Now displays the Period Closed error message when users attempt to change the quantity when a GL calendar period is closed.
    RF.PO Receipt (1.8):
    Now deletes only the selected item and corresponding location detail record when the reference has multiple items. Previously, the system deleted the entire reference.
    No longer locks records.
    Now correctly displays the destination location frame in the first row when you use the put-away algorithm. Previously, the destination location frame was displayed incorrectly.
    Now correctly displays the Gen Shipper ID? Y/N prompt when users specify a blank shipper ID. Previously, the system waited for user input without displaying a prompt.
    RF.Reprint (2.2) now correctly reprints the transaction detail for a transaction number from Warehouse Transaction Inquiry (80.9.1) with Transaction Type set to I. Previously, the transaction details were printed incorrectly.
    Several improvements were made to RF Batch Pick-SO (3.1). The program:
    Now validates the Quantity field and no longer moves to the next field when the user presses the up arrow.
    No longer lets users press right or left arrow keys or hit the Enter key in the Item field.
    Now lets users change the To Lot/Serial value when the To Lot/Serial field is set to allow change in Internal Routing Maintenance (80.2.5). Previously, the system did not let users change the value in the field. This is also true for RF Batch Pick All (3.2).
    Now correctly calculates the net weight and gross weight in the header and container level of the pre-shipper when you create the pre-shipper for an item with specified net weight, ship weight, or both. Previously, the values were calculated incorrectly.
    Now correctly moves partial quantities from one container to another when users press the F7 key to invoke the move item function. The transferred quantity displays correctly in Pre-Shipper/Shipper Workbench (7.9.2).
    Now correctly moves the inventory from a previous location to the next location when you set Two Phase to No in Internal Routing Maintenance (80.2.5) for the last sequence of the internal routing and the task is closed. This is also true for RF Batch Pick (3.2) and Movement Conf. Workbench (80.8.4).
    Now correctly creates allocation details and does not delete the pre-shipper line when the system validates the transaction with a null quantity. Previously, the quantity picked was left in the user location.
    No longer creates pick details for a user location with a zero quantity when the system validates the transaction with a null quantity and Complete, Repick, Fail set to Yes in the RF Batch Picking program ( Previously, the system moved the zero quantity to the user location.
    No longer creates a negative inventory balance for a location with an inventory status when you specify that overissue is allowed and attempt to confirm the pre-shipper after a cycle-count entry. Previously, the system created a negative inventory record.
    Now correctly rolls back the transaction when users confirm the first pick task, then select the Undo and Leave function from any other pick task for items that have a To Reference set to automatically generate a new reference (option 5) in Internal Routing Maintenance (80.2.5).
    Now updates the start date, time, and user ID when users press the End function after partially confirming the sales order quantity. Previously, the values were blank.
    During RF.Containerization (3.3) functions, the system no longer locks records, and pre-shippers display correctly.
    RF Container Move (3.4):
    No longer displays error messages, informing users that it cannot change location, and now correctly moves inventory to the destination location when multiple sequences of internal routing group are specified in Internal Routing Maintenance for a container move.
    Now correctly creates and confirms a warehouse transaction and moves the inventory to the destination location when users change the destination location and an internal routing does not contain the storage location group of the destination location. Previously, the transaction was not created.
    No longer fails when you use multi-item pallets.
    Cycle Count Result Entry (3.14):
    No longer displays a locking error when users transfer the same item that was counted using the RF Transfer (1.3) option. Previously, the system locked at the Location prompt, waiting for user input for next Transfer.
    Now displays an error, informing users that the quantity on hand was changed by another user with a PICK-SO transaction, created in another RF Batch Pick-SO (3.1)session. The error displays before users enter cycle count results. Previously, no error was displayed, and cycle count completed with incorrect quantities.
    Pre-Shipper/Shipper Confirm (7.9.5) no longer creates ISS-FAS transactions with incorrect quantity when Kit component items are picked from multiple locations. Previously, the system created incorrect quantity for ISS-FAS transaction and left some quantity at the assembly location.
