As I mentioned earlier, my application cannot be solved in one magical
query...or at least I don't think it can. Here's why:

1) Locate all orders and details of each order for last week.
2) What warehouse did it ship out of?
3) What WAS or SHOULD have been the correct warehouse it could have
shipped out of based on the customers shipping zip code?
4) How many iterations did the "system" have to go through to find the
next available warehouse at the time of purchase?
4) Did the order originate from the same warehouse? Or was it fulfilled
via 2 or more warehouses.
5) Sum up the excessive shipping costs and warehousing fees.
6) How much could we have saved by having the inventory in the right
place for our customers at the right time?
7) What was the total shipping and handling fees did we incur last week?

8) In a utopian society, what should have been our shipping and handling
9) Once that report is generated, email it to the boss man every Monday
morning in order to address potential warehousing problems. 

Thanks to ASP, Windows Schedule Task Manager, SRS, Exchange, and the
List, it's done.

Warehouse X, Y, and Z charge a different flat fee for an order. For each
warehouse is needed to fulfill the order, multiply handling fees per
warehouse per order. I've seen the numbers and it can add up fast. Now,
at least we know where the opportunities are.

Basic automatic autonomous order fulfillment request :-) I love SRS!
