Inventory adjustments

You can use Inventory Movement transactions in Storeroom to manually adjust customer- and distributor-owned inventory. You can change the quantity of products, or move product to and from unavailable inventory. These adjustments might be required under these circumstances:

  • To correct On Hand levels after a physical count
  • To move available products to unavailable inventory before creating a return

An inventory adjustment transaction in Storeroom initiates the Product Adjustments Entry function in Distribution SX.e and updates the customer- and distributor-owned inventory levels. If you adjust distributor-owned inventory only, you can use Product Adjustments Entry.

Inventory Movement transactions that require manager approval are not posted until they are approved by a manager.

See Approving or rejecting pending inventory adjustments.

You can only adjust inventory quantities for products in the allowed warehouses that are specified on your Storeroom Employee record.

You can manually adjust customer balances in Product Maintain Balance Entry, but we do not recommend it.
