Thankyou for your reply.
I really appreciate your help on this subject.
I have tested the workaround.
Unfortunately it does not work in one particular way.
Using my previous example, what happens is this…
We know at the end the 5 items will be shipped in 4 boxes.
As with standard shipping procedure the boxes will be marked “Box 1 of 4”, “Box 2 of 4”……….“Box 4 of 4”
1 x Item A and 1 x Item B use Delivery Note 1 and, from that, Packing slip 1. Packing Slip 1 is printed once for Box 1 and reads:
“From Package No 1 to Package No 1”
2 x Item C use Delivery Note 2, and, from that Packing Slip 2. Packing Slip 2 is printed twice for the 2 boxes marked Box 2 and Box 3 and reads:
“From Package No 1 to Package No 2” But it needs to read “From Package No 2 to Package No 3”
1 x Item D uses Delivery Note 3, and, from that Packing Slip 3. Packing Slip 3 is printed once for Box 4 and reads:
“From Package No 1 to Package No 1” But it needs to read “From Package No 4 to Package No 4”
So I think this workaround has a problem.
In every day manufacturing we find the shipping one of he most time consuming processes.
I would also suggest that my example is typical of a process that happens all the time in factories all around the world
I am very appreciative of what Erpnext can do but I do think this particular aspect of Erpnext requires some improvement.
If someone can suggest another way around this problem I would be very pleased to hear what I might be able to do.
