UPS Integration Using Boyum external Launcher
The Boyum external launcher is a means to access many external applications such as Notepad, Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, and vendor and customer applications on your system or the network. In this example the Boyum external launcher is used to access UPS Worldship and allow SAP users direct access to the status of tracking numbers. This application involves working with UPS Worldship integration personnel to 'map' Worldship fields to - from SAP. There is a SQL table defined for Worldship to populate as shipments are made. There is a SQL 'View' used to pass shipping information to Worldship from SAP.

Boyum IPT - Terms CodeThe Boyum IPT is used to move the user defined field COD beneath the payment terms description. NOTE: refer to the created 'View'. The only use of the COD flag in the terms comes when Worldship uses the view to retrieve the order and the flag 'CODFlag' is 'Y' if these terms are COD, otherwise 'No'.
Tracking Number on Delivery Order
UPS Account Data On Sales Order
Validation on Delivery OrderAs the delivery order is added, the B1 Validation checks to see if there are any UPS associated records in the UPS Tracking table. If there are, then the tracking number is stored in the 'pickrmrk' field of the delivery order. The UF UPS-01 transfers the data to this field. In Add mode it also updates the freight charges to the customer - if the customer's account is not being used to pay for UPS charges.
Validation on Sales OrderAs the sales order is created, Boyum checks the business partner master for the inclusion of a UPS account at either the business partner level or the business partner ship to address level. If found, the UPS account and the associated UPS fields are copied to the sales order - insure flag, residence flag. The user does not see any of this unless they access the 'Logistics' tab of the sales order. The user must manually enter the insurance amount - if any. If the address is a one-time address, then the 'Residence' flag must be manually maintained - with a default of 'N'.
Drill to UPSThis B1 Validation is invoked when the user double clicks the tracking number field on the delivery order (pickrmrk). This initiates an external launch of the UPS web site - including the tracking number on the delivery order.
