Talk about a perfect storm...
For one of my client's shippers, they usually send 1 shipment per month. We create a manifest in Excel, then get back and invoice in Excel. The naming convention for the dates on the files is MMDDYY.
Just to make things fun, I've been working on an automation system to get rid of the manual way they were generating the spreadsheets and generated test files for comparison.
Last month, we had a lot of orders and had to send out 2 shipments- one on the 12th, one on the 21st. So we had files with 111212 and others with 112112.
Not surprisingly, one of the files fell through the cracks and was never sent out.
So glad I'm not dyxlesic ;)
Unfortunately, the 12th and 21st are shippable days in December as well...
