MAPICS Release 6 and IBM OS400 V7.1

I was wondering if anyone has attempted to run MAPICS XA Release 6 on a I series machine at OS400 V7.1?
We have attempted this feat on 3 different LPARS and have found that the MAPICS Client will not perform
certain "COPY" functions for Purchase Orders and Items. I realize that we are treading on ground that
INFOR specifically says not to, but we are pretty close to getting this migration to work. Since we cannot
look at the Smalltalk data and the actual SQL statements, we were wondering if anyone has possibly
developed a way to get past this? We definitely do not want to have to reinvent the wheel here....

Thanks in advance,

Engineering Change Notice Software

We're looking for software to help us manage our Engineering Change Notice process.  Ideally, it would
contain the following:

1.       A portal where users can submit a request and check it's status

2.       Work flow processes (ability to assign tasks, track approvals, send informational emails)

3.       A searchable database for past history

4.       Integration with XA  (Pulling data to help supply the ECN forms & searchable from within XA objects)

5.       Easy to design and modify

Any suggestions?  Thanks

Pick List Allocation Audit

Happy New Year All,
    We use the COM Ship Pick option when printing COM pick lists each evening for the next day's picking and shipping.
We get a big list of items :( on the Pick List Allocation Audit report that are essentially backorders but we
don't trouble our pickers and shippers with them.
(Until we are better able to meet our schedules) I was wondering if anyone has program code that will take a
list of CO line items and appropriately flag them as backorders.

Demand Planning with XA

The standard Infor solution for forecasting with XA is Demand Planner.  We
do not currently support the integration, but the integration is quite
simple. Demand Planner has extensive forecasting capabilities.

I know there is another product in the Infor family that has also been
used with XA.  If Kevin Fox is listening on this thread, he would probably
be the expert.

Re: MAPICS-L Digest, Vol 11, Issue 105 ( for David Lauderdale from Mike Ellis / ISI )

David,

I have an extremely limited plan of what I did to take someone through the
steps just a few months ago.    Jeff's description is dead-on right,
though, and my steps will only supplement.   I only needed to do this
conversion so we could have location specific inventory that we could then
extract from MAPICS to load to SAP when we convert at the end of this year.
I didn't need to consider all the other things that Jeff mentions, but you
certainly must do so.
In my steps, I give you the SQL statements I used to build or clear certain
files in making the change.

Please read my steps with a full disclaimer that they are not sufficient to
do the whole job, just the very specific steps I had to follow in my use
case.

Implementaton Plan to go from Uncontrolled to Controlled Warehouse

Has anyone gone from uncontrolled to controlled warehouses?  If so, do you have an implementation plan? 
Also, in controlled warehouses, how to people manage backflushing of controlled floorstock from
multiple locations?  It appears to be very cumbersome.

Thanks for your help.

David

Help locating data in XA

I have been tasked with setting up a cover letter with the following information:
Customer Number
Customer Name
PO Number
Order Number

This information would be for this year. The file could be a history file that I can select year
that we want.
I would like to know what file or files I could get this information from. Hopefully there is one file with
this information in it.

Thank you,
William Moore
