    Problem Symptoms:
    * running "Send List of Orders to a Vendor (acq-14)" only produces three results
    * report hasn't been printed for a number of weeks so it should have hundreds of orders

    Most of the orders were placed for a vendor who has List Send Method EDI by mistake.
    As a result, the order list for this vendor has been created in a sub-directory /edi underneath the ./xxx50/print directory.
    The Task Manager displays only files from the /print directory but not from /print/edi.

    1. Replace the current header section of the order list file

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <subject>Acq order list</subject>


    with e.g.

    ## - XML_XSL
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <subject>Acq order list</subject>

    2. Move the file from /print/edi/edi.20120709.124337.0 to e.g. /print/orderlist_for_vendor_xyz

    3. Print or send the order list via the Task Manager

    4. To avoid this problem in the future, go to the vendor record and change the Letter Send Method and the List Send Method from EDI to PRINT or EMAIL
