Negative On-Order Quanity.
Problem reported by Ryan Haas - 2/2/2016 at 2:47 PM

One of my items in my inventory has a -6 on-order quantity. The only way I've been able to fix this is to just leave an open PO with this item on-order with a quantity of 6. I ran a batch process and it didn't seem to fix the problem. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Right click on the item in the stock code selection window and select "View On-Order Details" from the popup menu.  Do you see any entries there with negative quantities?  That should tell you where the on-order quantity is coming from.

No, I do not see any negative quantities. I've even gone back as far as 5 years to see if there have ever been any that were entered. As of right now I've got one actual order for the item for 3 and one "false" order with 6. Details of the item are showing 3 total on-order.

My apologies. I thought that the on-order detail would show items with a negative quantity, but I was incorrect.  It will only shot items with positive on-order quantities as it was designed for ordering items rather than returning them to your supplier.

In short, you have an entry for that item with a negative quantity on one of your open purchase orders.  If you don't have that many open POs, just open each one and look for that item with a negative quantity.  You can correct the quantity there.
