The /VA function is widely used for stock availability inquiry and placing orders among CODIS clients. It’s often desirable to temporarily disable incoming inquiries from other CODIS clients during the physical inventory process since a delay in shipping would most likely occur. To disable those incoming inquires use the CODES file editor, 70/50 from the main CODIS menu. Edit code type “WHSE-OPTIONS” for the specific warehouse, field #13 changing it from “No” to “Yes”.
The inquiring party will be notified with a messaging reading “Inventory in Progress – No Information Available”. Edit code type “WHSE-OPTIONS” for the specific warehouse, field #13 changing it from “Yes” to “No” when inventory has been completed and shipping has been resumed..
