Enter NEW to create a new entry or enter the batch sequence number of an existing entry to display.

Matl Order

Enter the material order to confirm. Press F4 for a list of valid material orders.


Enter the material order item to confirm. Press F4 for a list of valid items for this material order.


Specify the date for this confirmation entry. Initially defaults the current date.


Specify the number of units of this material that are being confirming at this time. Initially defaults the “remaining” units.

Note: If you enter a negative value, units will be returned to stock.

Change to Remaining

This field defaults the change to the item's remaining units; typically the opposite of the confirmed amount. For example, if you confirmed 100.000 units, this field will default as -100.000.

Note: You may override this value if necessary; however, the system will not recalculate the confirmed units. In addition, it may cause negative remaining units, which can result in understated committed costs and units.


Enter miscellaneous notes about this confirmation entry, if applicable, up to 60 characters. Initially defaults the material's description from the material order item (if one exists).

Note: The entry here is updated to JCCD (Cost Detail). If you override the default description, the override description (or memo) will be updated to JCCD, not the material description. However, if this field is blank, JCCD will be updated with the material description from HQMT (HQ Materials).
