I need help setting up a batch ship confirmation process. Here’s the scenario. We are using a third party warehouse service to ship our goods to customers. We will to create an XML program to signal the warehouse that specific orders are ready to ship. After shipment, we want to automate the process of ship confirmation. The plan is to create an XML program that will pull shipping data from the warehouse system and update JDE by shipping the goods. We are not using transportation management.

I have been testing batch ship confirmation using R42500 and I cannot get it to work because I don’t fully understand how it is supposed to work. I had assumed that the XML program would write shipment data (serial number, carrier etc…) to the tables F47131, F47132. Then the batch programs would use those records to update the F4211 with any changes as well as ship confirm the lines via P4205. When I manually populate F47132 and F47131 and run R42500, it doesn’t confirm the orders or update F4211. Can anyone shed some light on how this is supposed to work? Do I need to update separate from batch confirmation? All ideas welcome!
