Hi Kathy,

My memory is sketchy, but I believe it was originally requested by Brodart
(though others may support it) and it provides a way to send additional
processing instructions to the vendor on a per-item basis.  I'd say it
serves roughly the same purpose as vendor account codes, in that they can
be used to determine how a batch of items are processed, but more granular.
