Pickslip SpiderThe Pick-Slip Spider is, yet again, a tool born out of necessity.
Pick slips printed by JDE and sent to the printers via a formatting tool seemed to disappear.
In order to make sure that all orders at a status "printed" have actually left the formatting tool, the PDFs have to be saved in an archive.
Pick-Slip Spider will then continuously cross-check the archive with JDE's sales order file and
list the missing orders.
This seems like another one of these stupid tools.
How can this be?
The answer is simple. Once the pick slip program (R42520)
prints the document, the sales order status is set to "printed".
Now, if this interim (formatting) tool drops the document
somewhere along the line,
The sales order itself, though, after allegedly being printed,
moves on to the next status and that is waiting for ship-confirmation.
Yes, there are ways to avoid this. Keep one person occupied
continuously checking the orders,
