    Shipment creation

    Hi,
    I want to create a new shipment record , pulling information from a list of PO items and then adding the new record to a different table.



    Each shipment will have items from several different PO's and but only some of the items from each of the PO's.

    So I would create the new shipment number then find the correct PO number from the PO file, select the items off the given PO and add them to the shipment. I then need to repeat this with other PO's to add to the same shipment.
    This would then be added to a new table to do other manipulations with.

    Hope you can help

    I use a list box to pick items.
    User dbl-clicks the item ,this runs an append query to add to the Ship table. (del key can remove it via Delete query)
    Then when all items are added, the Final button prints manifests, etc.

    similar to this:

    Hi,
    My list is a bit more complicated.

    I need to input the PO number then select the lines that are on the shipment.
    The select another PO and add items from that one.

    I suggest you show us a zip copy of your database --remove anything private/confidential first.
    Perhaps you could lead us through a specific example using a data value(s) in your PO info and illustrate how items on the PO(s) get put into a Shipment for clarification.

    You may also get some info from this free data model from Barry Williams' site. Just substitute Shipment for Delivery.

    Or this model from same site.

    I think I need to use a sub form. It turns out the amount of data I have does not need such a complicated solution. Thanks anyway.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
