What if I don’t want to manually create the Inventory Inquiry/Advice every time?
This is completely understandable, especially if you have a large amount of items in your inventory. You have the option to add the 846 import function to your account, which would allow you to update a file as needed and import it into Transaction Manager to create the Inventory Inquiry/Advice. This would cut down on manual entry and save time! Contact your Account Manager or our Support Team for more information.
