QUESTION:

Why is it whenever i transmit information to a remote location using the Endevor Package ship utility (C1BMX000) and there are several ship requests for the same package (shipping to multiple destinations) they are processed in alphabetical order regardless of the order in which the ship statements are entered.

ANSWER:

This feature is inherent in the design.  The utility accepts from 1 to n ship requests related to different packages, destinations and output/backout members.  Endevor puts them together in destination order to process them.  There is no way to specify the processing order for destinations.
