Vantage Bill of Lading for Consolidated Shipments


(system) #1
I have posted a file titled "BOL SHIPPING CHECK LIST.exe" that is a self
viewing executable. If you download and run, you will see a report/form
created with Report Builder from a sample BOL with 6 linked packing slips.
We use this report at Snow Fitration as a check list to insure all the items
shipping by common carrier are loaded onto the truck. (We could have 10, 20,
even 30 orders shipping to a customer in one day.) If you are interested,
contact me off line. I would be happy to explain the nuances off this
report.

Hi everyone,
We're running Vantage 3.00.628. Our largest customers require one bill
of lading per truckload shipped. The bill of lading must contain the
following information for each part shipped: quantity shipped, number of
cartons, pieces per carton, PO number, PO line, PO release, part
description, and customer part description. We ship up to ten different
parts, with different PO numbers, on each truckload. I've tried report
builder and had no success. I've also tried Crystal version 7 and had
no success. Customer support hasn't been very helpful-they suggest
customer programming (in each Vantage version, of course!) Right now we
write the bill of lading on preprinted forms using the packing slip
info. There's got to be a better way. Has anyone written a report to
overcome this problem? Anyone have a workaround?
Any help or comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,
Debbie Raiona
