StarShip will search for any draft shipment or shipment processed within the last "#" days

When importing a document (orders, sales transactions, etc.) from your source interface, StarShip will scan all open (draft) shipments, and only the processed shipments within the number of days you set here, for shipments that may already exist for that document.  So, for example, if you add an order to a shipment you've already saved or processed in StarShip, you can reprocess the shipment with the new order added without voiding write-back or tracking numbers.
