Inventory: Transfer Stock

Transfer Stock

Transfer Stock

The Inventory Transfer function can be used to formally transfer stock from one multi-location to another. This feature is particularly useful where locations are being maintained for stock in several buildings or warehouses.

Within this window you can effect a transfer from one location to another which will be recorded in a special transfer file. You can review previous transfers and print a Transfer document.

The Transfer Document makes use of Delivery Detail records to provide From and To addresses and location notes. See File — System Manager — Delivery Details, Goods-Inwards Delivery Details Maintenance window for details.

To record a transaction click on the Create Transaction button. Select the part you are transferring using the up/down arrow buttons, KeyWord Search or ScratchPad as needed.It is only useful to select a part with multi-location stocks. You can select a From and To delivery point from the drop-up lists. This is not mandatory but does enable you to have pre-defined addresses on the Transfer Document.

Select a From Stores Location from the drop list, this is mandatory. Then either select a To Store Location from the drop list, or enter a new location code into the box provided. Note that if the part is a batch-tracked part, you will only be able to select a To location that already contains the same batch number. If you do select an existing To location the quantity will be moved into it. If the From Location contains a Batch ID, this will be displayed below and recorded.

Enter a quantity which will be in the Stock units of measure and can not be greater than the From location quantity.

Finally you have three free text fields in which you can enter respectively a Unit Description, a Reference and a Comment. All these will be recorded for future use and printed on the document.

When you are satisfied, click Ok and the transfer will be assigned a new number and processed.
