Non Inventory Items on Sales Order - Why need shipping?

Hi All

We have non-inventory items (type service and non-inventory) on sales order to define Freight (not using charge items). When a picklist is created only inventory items get to picklist. After posting pick list, if I try to post sales order with Invoice only option non-inventory items remain in the sales order. So if there is an open pick list quantity we cannot charge freight until the last shipment as we have to adjust Qty to Invoice and use invoice only option. What is the rationale that non-inventory items cannot be invoiced without shipment? or any workarounds to manage open pick lists and partial invoicing with freight?

Thanks

    The zero value shouldn’t be confused with 0 unit cost. There is a boolean, usually hidden which controls it so an item can never have a value

    2 ways to go.

    1. Run batch posting for the reminder on SO’s just shipping. The right filters play a big part here.

    2. Use an inventory item. Mark it as zero value to stop costing/value problems. If able to allow it to go into negative inventory. Or just give it a huge level of inventory. It then gets “picked” like all other items.
