This tab is almost always used for stock takes and stock level adjustments (e.g. when an incorrect level is detected). It is also used to Transfer Stock between Sites (at least one additional site must be setup prior to using this functionality). A history of past adjustments can be seen in the [ Stock | Adjustments | History ] screen.

Stock can be adjusted individually, by stock type or multiple stock types; further guidance can be found at:

This sub-tab consists of three main areas:


Action Buttons

This screen has three action buttons:
Open - bring in current stock item or group of items: this button populates the stock adjustment grid with stock based on your selections within the Adjustment Options section to the left of the grid.
Right clicking this button allows the user to either Open (this has the same result as left clicking the button) or Lookup and Open stock items from the stock lookup dialog.

Save - post all adjustments to stock control system: this button updates the stock control system with any changes the user did to the stock level within the stock adjustment grid.

Cipher: this is only used with the Cipher laser barcode stock take system.

Adjustment Options

The following options are available:

  • Adjust (Current): if ticked this option is used to adjust, or transfer, the currently loaded stock item.
  • Adjust (Stock Type): if ticked this option activates the Stock Type checkbox field below. The user can populate the grid with groups of stock by checking the stock types they want to include in the adjustment.

  • Adjust Type : this dropdown box consists of the two main adjustment types:
    • Stock Update: when this option is selected any adjustments in the stock adjustment grid will update the stock level for that stock item at the site the user is currently logged in at.
    • Transfer: this is used in conjunction with the Site To dropdown box. Any adjustments in the stock adjustment grid will represent a stock move from the site the user is currently logged in at to the site defined in the Site To, see How To: Transfer Stock to Another Site and How To: View a Previous Stock Transfer Report.
      Note: if a stock transfer has been made in error it CANNOT be corrected with a minus movement, see How To: Correct a Stock Site Transfer made in Error to reverse the error.
  • Site To: is used in conjunction with the Transfer Adjust Type, and sets the site that stock will be transferred to.
  • Note/Reason: is a free text field for the user to input the reason for the adjustment of stock.
    1. It is recommended that a note/reason is always entered when making a stock adjustment as this will provide traceability and assist your audit process. This can be made a mandatory field, for more information please email Development.
    2. Predefined reasons can be used instead of notes, see How To: Setup Adjustment Reasons.
  • Supplier (Red Traffic Light Filter /Green Traffic Light Filter traffic light filter): uses the the green opening folder icon is normally linked to the opening of a dialog box that allows the user to browse and select a value or range of values to display stock by the preferred supplier.

    2. It is possible to return no results in the stock adjustment grid especially if using Adjust (current).
  • Show Discontinued: is only active when the Adjust (Stock Type) is ticked. It will populate the grid with any stock items that are marked as Discontinued in their [ Stock | Detail | Options ] tab.
  • Stock Types: this area displays all the stock types set up and is only available when using the adjustment option Adjust (Stock Type). Users can check as many stock types as they want to adjust. The following right click options are associated with stock types:
    • Select All: which selects all stock types and is very useful is you require the entire stock item list to populate the stock adjustment grid.
    • Select None: this un-checks all stock type on the list.

Adjustment Grid

The Stock Adjustments grid displays:

  • Stock Code: is the stock code for the stock item.
  • Description: is the short description for the stock item.
  • In Stock: the number of Stock Items currently held.
  • Assigned: the number of Stock Items assigned to Sales Orders (sold but not sent).

  • Adjust To: is an editable field where the user can enter the New Stock Level Total. Once the new figure has been entered the difference will be expressed in the Adjust By cell.
  • Adjust By: is an editable field where the user can enter an adjustment amount. For example a member of staff in the warehouse found an unaccounted for stock item, the stock control officer would Adjust By 1. The opposite being where a member of staff lost a stock item or it was damaged, the stock control office would Adjust By -1.
  • Stock Value: the current stock value as displayed on [ Stock | Details | Properties ] screen. Please note that any changes of the stock value even if no actual stock levels are changed will overwrite the Stock Value in the [ Stock | Details | Properties ] tab.
  • Location: displays the simple location as defined in the Location field in the [ Stock | Details | Properties ] screen or the location for the site the user is located in as entered in the Stock Item Parameters dialog. This field is editable, see How To: Update Simple Stock Locations in Bulk and will update the simple location as well as the location defined for the site..
