Nil means there is no stock allocated, Part means that some but not all of the stock is allocated whilst Full means that all stock ordered has been allocated. The option that is coloured Orange, is the currect allocation status of the current order.

In the screenshot below, you can see that Nil is coloured Orange, meaning no stock has been allocated to the order.

The Nil and Full indicators are clickable or can be activated by pressing and holding the <ALT> key and the hightlighted (underscore) letter of the desired indicator. By activating the Nil indicator, this will de-allocate all currently allocated stock from the order. Similary, activating the Full indicator, allocates all stock subject to availability. When allocating stock this way, the system will automatically allocate stock from the oldest stock through to the newest.
