# Shipment Approval (SHIP.E4)
Read Time: 1 minute(s)
The SHIP.E2 procedure is used to approve a shipment for posting to Accounts Receivable. This is an option procedure. A flag exists in SHIP.CONTROL named "Require Approval?" that will require this option to be used before any posting can occur.
The main purpose of this procedure is to allow the Accounting Department to review all shipments prior to posting, rather than post directly after the Shipping Department has flagged is as shipped.
The user has access to all of the same header information as is available in SHIP.E2 , but none of the line item or detail screens are present. Any changes to part number, quantities, bins, etc., must be made via SHIP.E2 .
Frequency of Use
Shipments must have been processed through the SHIP.E2 procedure and the status must be "S" (shipped).
