Commit Range The information in this field is used to determine which scheduled quantities on a new sales order are to be defaulted to the "commit" status. The entry in this field should be a number representing the number of days to be added to the current system date at the time of order entry. The resulting date is used as the cut-off for setting the commit status on a given schedule date. If the schedule date is less than or equal to the cut-off date the associated quantity will be commited. If you do not want commitments to be set automatically then leave this field blank.
Sched Days This field determines if scheduled dates are to be defaulted in sales order entry, and the date to be used as the default. If a number is present in this field then the system will use this as the number of days to add to the current date in setting the date to be loaded automatically. If you always want to default the current date then you would enter "0" into this field. Leave the field blank if you do not want a default date to be automatically loaded.
