Production order overlapping with purchase orders for outside process


I set up the overlap option in a router so we can send 50 pieces (total order quantity is 200) of material ahead to an outside heat treat operation. When we try to create the purchase order for the 50 to be sent out for heat treat two problems occur.

1. The quatity in the purchase order is for the entire order of 200, not 50.

2. We get a message "Date /23/2010 period D is not valid.

We currently do not use the functionality of splits and overlaps so if anyone can help or guide me to a good resource I would appreciate it.
