YTD sold not netting out of Production plan

Hello! I am the buyer for a manufacturing firm and we’ve recently run into some issues with our master plan.
Problem 1- At some point the entire product plan for 2 of our 7 forecast was wiped out completely.
Problem 2 – The product sold is not netting out of the production plan which is then fed to MRP… (i.e.) ORIGINAL FORECAST – 30 CASES SOLD OUT OF ORIGINAL FC – 10 MRP SHOULD SHOW WE NEED MATERIAL FOR 20 CASES, BUT ITS STILL SHOWING WE NEED MATERIAL FOR 30 CASES.
Problem 2 is the most immediate issue, for we are entering an extremely busy season in regards to shipping. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated, please keep in mind I am a buyer. This is way outside my realm of knowledge but I am learning. Our program/software company is at a loss.
Thanks so much!

    What software vendor are you currently using as they all function slightly different? If you program/software vendor is at a loss it may be time to think of getting someone new.

    What I guess is you need a strong support at your end.
