Running a Backorder Report
After Inshipping goods and running a Receipt of Goods report, you may also run a BackOrder report. This report contains all Items BackOrdered which are now fillable with new Inshipped goods. The report is sorted by Salesperson.
Ords menu >> Show Open Orders
This opens a list of all Orders with Items left to be shipped. This list includes Orders with shippable Items. To eliminate those Orders and create a report on Orders that contain only backordered Items, choose: Actions menu >> Search.
Create the Search conditions: “DateInvoiceComp” is equal to “1/1/1”. This locates the desired group of Orders.
With the list of Orders open, click the “Trans” button at the lower portion of the Output screen. This creates Subrecords of each Line Item and creates a better report.

Select “Search in Selection” in the Sets Popup menu. Create the Search conditions: “QtyBackLogged” not equal to “0”. This locates the Line Items desired for the report. Choose: File menu >> Print Primary . The report prints.
