And we need to know the actual ship date, so let's put in a column for that. Now the SHIPPED bit is redudant. Actually dangerous; someone sets the flag but doe snto give a date, or gives a date, but does not set the flag. One program uses the flag, another uses the date to get totals. We're screwed.
