Advanced Scripting for MAS 90 / MAS 200 - default ship dates

Advanced Scripting in MAS 90 / MAS 200 saves time and money. Here is another real-world example of how we've helped a customer use it to improve their daily operations in a simple way:
Company XYZ typically ships its products 3 days following the order. Every day, the person entering the sales order changes the "ship date" on the sales order header to the current date + 3, or uses their "sales order defaults" window to set the new date, so that the ship date does not default to the current date.
A script automates the process by setting the ship date to the order date + X, where X is any set number of days. A script can also be configured to take weekends into account, so X days does not include Saturdays and Sundays. This simple customizations saves time and reduces errors!
