    Looking to see if there's a better way to load non-stock items to IC81.  Currently non-stocks are loaded in IC11 with both EA and BX for example.  With EA being the stock UOM and BX being the BUOM for example.  This requires us to pull out all of the items and assign a tracking flag of 2 to the BUOM.  This allows the item to be loaded to IC81 but also allows users to change the UOM since both are valid UOM.  We're hoping there's a better way to do this.  Is there?

    We set the transaction flag and buy flag to 1 for the BUOM and then set the transaction flag to 2 and the buy flag to blank for the Stk UOM. The material handlers can still add EA as the UOM in IC81 but because we don't allow decimals for qty in IC11, when they try to order they get an error - "0 decimal item; Cannot convert qty cleanly to any buy UOM"

    For true nonstocks, we load them only with the Buy UOM. Since we don't stock them, they are 1-1-1-1-1 across the board and the requesters don't have the opportunity to change them.

    For items that are stock elsewhere but might be nonstock for a particular location (i.e. they order too much to get from the main warehouse so order directly from the vendor), we set them up with 2 in transaction to allow the buy uom to be processed on their requisition and code the template / par cart to the buy uom.
