Printing Bill of Lading Documents Confirming Order Shipments and Generating Shipping Documents by Ayman Refat - March 13, 20180 Printing Bill of Lading Documents Concept A bill of lading includes information about the items shipped, billing details, shipping instructions, and signature lines from the driver and the customer. You can specify the heading that prints at the top of the document, such as Bill of Lading, when you run the program. Because a shipping document has signature lines for the delivery person and the customer, you can also use it as a receipt. The Bill of Lading program (R42530) contains processing options for specifying: • Whether the next status code for the sales order detail line is updated using the order activity rules or an override status code. • Whether to prevent the update of status codes. • Which unit of measure to use for weight and volume in sales order totals. • Whether to print prices, serial numbers, item and customer numbers, and additional header text, such as whether the document is the original or a reprint. • Whether to print amounts in the domestic currency, foreign currency, or both the domestic and foreign currency. You can print consolidated bills of lading using the Transportation Bill of Lading program (R49110). Consolidated bills of lading show the sequencing data if you use the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Transportation Management sequencing functionality.
