the above two entries are about General Ledger accounting transaction: AcctgTrans is the header
and AcctgTransEntry are the Dr and Cr entries; if you are not planning to use accounting you
could even skip them.

> ShipmentReceipt.xml

This represent the "document" for the receipt; the GL transactions are associated to this

You should create one new InventoryItem for each ShipmentReceipt; then you should also create
the InventoryItemDetail with the initial units received; this will trigger a service that
will update the InventoryItem.quantityOnHandTotal field.

I hope it helps,
