My company is starting to enforce delivery date control, but we cannot get AX 2009 to allow the Receipt Date on transfer orders to fall on weekends without also permitting weekend ship dates. I have created a "transport" calendar that has weekend days set to Open and "Closed for pickup" and have assigned that calendar to one warehouse,while leaving another calendar (which has weekend and holiday dates Closed) as the global Shipping calendar and the calendar assigned to other warehouses. This is allowing me to schedule transfer orders to arrive on weekends (not a problem for us), but it also is allowing the requested ship date on sales orders to be on weekends, which we don't want. Trying to determine how these calendars work and their hierarchy/interaction is proving nearly impossible. Can someone help me understand what's necessary to deny shipment on weekends/holidays while allowing the transfer order Receipt date to fall on those days?
