WARNING icon
Warehouse Location Control is an Advanced User feature.
It contains complex, resource-intensive functionality and a decision to begin using it should therefore not be taken lightly.


Build items are constructed from other stock items. By default no automatic stock movements occur when build items are added to sales orders as the quantity built via the relationships tab affects the stock level.

Creating a new Build Parent Stock Item

  1. Open a Stock screen (show me how).
  2. Press Ctrl+N or click the New item icon is the button bar's NEW button .
  3. Define the parent item (stock code, description, pricing and stock types).
  4. Press Ctrl+S or click the disk icon is the button bar's SAVE button    to save.
  5. Define the Primary Pick Location where the Parent Item will be stored after it has been built.
    Note: the built item will only be stored in the first Primary Pick Location that has space available. If there is no space then an error will be returned.

Adding Build Child Items

  1. Open the [ Stock | Detail | Relationships ] tab.
  2. Press Alt+E or click the green triangle icon is the buttonbar's EDIT button to enter edit mode.
  3. Set the Relationship Type to 'Build' from the drop down box.

  5. Enter the quantity of the selected item that you wish to added to the build.
  6. Click on OK in the Quantity popup.
