General Order Record Testing Instructions


Our goal is to verify that the Order records migrated perfectly from Notis to Voyager. We have 1 day, July 8, to review our migrated Order records.  


How Orbis Order records are migrated


·                    The Order record migration consists of all open orders, i.e. those with status A, B, C, or D

·                    All Orders are migrated as “Pending”

·                    All Divisions of a multi-division order will be migrated

·                    No invoice, payment, or claim data is migrated.


Specific fields are migrated as follows:


1)  The AMT field in the order record is migrated to the Voyager Line Item price field, and translated to Voyager base currency, if necessary.


2)  The Division Note field of the order record is examined for the presence of *** characters to identify a Vendor title number. If found, the Vendor title number is migrated to the Vendor Title field in Voyager without the surrounding *** characters.


3)  All Order Units are mapped to Acquisitions Happening Locations - see online map at


4)  The combination of Scope and Receiving Unit is used to map Purchase Order Type.  Purchase Order Type then determines Line Item Type as follows:








Firm Order

Single Part




Single Part

















* All SCOPE=1 materials except recunit 50 will load with a default Purchase Order Type of Firm Order.

** All SCOPE=2 materials except recunits 8 and 49 will load with a default Purchase Order Type of Continuation.



5) NOTES from the Order record are migrated as follows:


o       All notes are loaded to the Line Item Note field

o       Each note is separated by a semicolon

o       The Voyager Line Item Note has a maximum of 1900 characters; all note info up to 1900 characters is loaded

o       Order record  Note information is in the following order:


a.       L1 - Selector Initials

d.      'VA' Vendor Address information if vendor code is not 'D'

f.        'NV' Note to Vendor

e.       'NO' Order note

b.      Source

c.       Reference

g.       Division note

h.       ‘N’ Note statements
