Assigning Lot Numbers
You can choose lot numbers for the line item quantity to issue or receive. You can view the Lot Entry window only when you establish lot control for the item you issue or receive.
To assign lot numbers to the item quantity to issue or receive:
The Qty field displays the total quantity you entered for the transaction. The Lot Qty Entered field displays the quantity for the item that you have assigned to lot number.
2. Enter a new or existing lot number to which to issue or receive the item.
3. Optionally, enter the date that the material in the lot expires. You can enter a value in this field only if you enter a new lot number in the previous field and if the Lot Expiration (Shelf Life) Control attribute for the item is set to User-defined Expiration Date.
If this attribute is set to Item shelf life days for the item, Inventory calculates the expiration date for you by adding the shelf life days you defined for the item to the current date. Inventory then displays the result as the default value; you cannot change this date.
4. Enter the quantity of the item to issue or receive to the lot. The Available and On-Hand fields display the current quantities for each lot.
Available: Displays the quantity available to issue, based on the unit of measure you specified. This amount could include the amount you have reserved if you enter a transaction source that has reservations against it. The available quantity is specific to the revision level, subinventory, locator, and lot you define for the issue or receipt. For receipt transactions, Inventory adds the receipt quantity to the available quantity when you complete the transaction.
On Hand: Displays the current on-hand quantity of the item, based on the unit of measure you specified. The on-hand quantity is specific to the revision, subinventory, locator, and lot you specify.
5. Choose Done to return to the Transaction Lines window.
