StarShip can access Customer, Order, and Ship To user defined fields from Macola. Using the Customize Interface feature in StarShip, you can map your custom user defined fields to StarShip shipment fields.
When shipping against Customers, only values from Customer User Defined fields are accessible. But, for shipments against Orders, all types of User Defined fields are accessible. Depending upon the version of Macola that you are using, the Macola field names may vary.
Customer User Defined Fields
There are 11 custom fields associated with the Customer. You can populate these field names in A/R tab > Customers > Maintain by opening the customer record and selecting the Extra tab.
You can map these fields for the Orders and Customer document types in Customize Interface.
