If you have an Inventory Location with quantities, say Warehouse B
The user can delete that location without receiving any message like
And the quantities associated with that location disappear from the Inventory Item
Also any transaction which referenced that Inventory Location now displays
However, the situation is not fatal as the quantities can be re-established if the user either selects the “x” to delete the “####” which will cause it to become “Unspecified location” or another Inventory Location on each affected transaction.
Fortunately, the user can track all those transactions showing “####” as they show up as “Unspecified location” on the Report > “Inventory Quantity by Location”
If a user happens to delete all Inventory locations, then all quantities are removed even though a transaction exists for that Inventory Item.
Purchase Invoice with Inventory location
Inventory Item with quantity
Inventory location deleted (without any warning message as displayed above)
The Purchase Invoice no longer has any Inventory location field
The Inventory Item shows no transactions even though the Purchase Invoice exists.
Under this situation the user doesn’t have access to either “####” or the location report.
However, once again the situation is not fatal as all the user has to do is recreate an Inventory location and the “#####” will return to all transactions and the location report becomes available.
NOTE: This testing was done without the Goods Receipt or Delivery Note tabs activated.
