    There are two different ways of entering quantity when using multiple item selection, depending on how the view for (MMS200) is defined in 'View. Open' (CRS020):

    • If the 'Option/Quantity' field=0 in (CRS020/F), then you must enter the ordered quantity when you return to the B or H panel in (OIS101).
    • If the 'Option/Quantity' field=1 in (CRS020/F), then the 'Order quantity' field is displayed on the (MMS200/B) panel, where you can enter the ordered quantity directly, and information about the quantity is displayed you return to the B or H panel in (OIS101).
  2. On the B panel, select the items to be ordered and right-click one of the items then select Select. The following applies:

    • If you have started from the (OIS101/B) panel and selected only one item, you will return to the (OIS101/B) panel with the ordered item. Go to the (OIS101/B) panel, continue order line entry if required. Click Exit to finish.
    • If you have started from the (OIS101/B) panel and selected several items, you will return to the (OIS101/H) panel with the ordered items. Go to (OIS101/B) panel, continue order line entry if required. Click Exit to finish.
    • If you have started from the (OIS101/H) panel and selected one or several items, you will always return to the (OIS101/H) panel with the ordered items. Go to (OIS101/H) panel, press Enter to validate the selected items. Click Exit to finish.
      Note: The selection of ordered items is cancelled if you leave the (OIS101/H) panel without validation.

      When you return to (OIS101/H) with a selection of items and you want to add more items to the order, it is possible to press F4=Browse again and make a new selection. In this case, no control is done by M3 to prevent you from selecting the same items as previously.

    • If one or more items selected in 'Item. Open Toolbox' (MMS200/B) fail the standard controls executed by 'Customer Order. Open Line' (OIS101), a warning message is displayed informing you how many items could not be selected.
