Stock Multi-Location Maintenance

This window is used to mass-change Locations and mass delete empty locations.

When the list is built a special code is used to identify the Last Date. This in-effect is the last date an inventory movement took place from or to the location. The date, by default, is the extended information date which is normally the date the location was created on. However, the stock history is examined and location list data explored to establish when the location was last used. The latest date is used. If the location has a batch number, this is used to identify the last date, but if not it uses the location text. This means that if the location for the record has been changed since the inventory movement, you will not get a true Last Date – typically it will be the location’s creation date.
