Copy Last Package

Copy Last Package

You are here:

Dynamic Ship 2.5 (BC15+) introduced a command to copy the last package. The command is ‐‐COPYLASTPKG or ‐‐CLP. This command duplicates the current or last package if there’s no current package. For this processes, complete the following:

  1. Create the first package.
  2. Pack the desired quantity of the item.
  3. Set the package dimensions.
  4. Issue the ‐‐clp to duplicate that package, dimensions, and packed items.

If you require multiple copies, add the number of copies after the command (e.g., ‐‐clp12). This copies the package up to 12 times, stopping short if there is not enough quantity on the order.

If the user just wants to create as many identical packages as possible, they can use ‐‐clp0. 0 tells the system the user wants as many as possible.

If there’s overflow quantity (e.g., 2 per box with 5 on the order), it is not handled by the process.

Dynamic Ship Pack Commands

You can see all available commands by searching for the Dynamic Ship Pack Commands or use the command ‐‐HELP or ‐‐H in the package worksheet. This process can be turned into a single command with the following configuration:

  1. Set Item Quantity Behavior (in the Dynamic Ship Setup) to pack one.
  2. Enable Chain Multiple Commands.
  3. Ensure a suitable License Plate Template for the user exists with the Shipment Dimensions, Weight, and their Units of Measure populated.
  4. Issue the following style of command:%lpt%template%i%item‐‐clp0

R: %lpt% tells the system to look for a License Plate Template with the code template.
G: %i% tells the system to look for an item with the number item.
B: This will copy that packing information as often as possible.

If you want the user to enter one command, use Dynamic Ship Extensibility. This allows you to create a custom command to handle the different scenarios (e.g., differing box sizes, item weights, packing more than one of select items, and more). This can be done with your partner’s assistance or through Support. For more information, see Extending Dynamic Ship.
