IC81.1 Copy Function
I have an issue where if I copy a cart from another par location to another(IC81.1), I have mixed results. The copy seems to work fine; everything seems to be listed properly after the copy.

It works fine if I manually enter in each item and my current workaround is to copy from one cart and then go back into IC81.1 and "press change items w/o making adjustments" on each item. Am I missing something? Do I need to do something different other than just entering a copy from location in the appropriate field? Any help would be appreciated. Read More...
