To adjust your inventory levels, you can use either of these forms: Inventory Adjustment or Inventory Worksheet. They adjust your inventory in different ways.
For example, if you enter both forms with a quantity of +10 widgets, see how each form performs the adjustment:
The Inventory Adjustment form is inclusive of the previous stock total, so it adds 10 to the previous inventory count.
The Inventory Worksheet is exclusive of the previous stock level. It resets the inventory count to 10 on the date of the worksheet, regardless of the previous count.
For serialized or lot-numbered items, you can use the Inventory Adjustment form only.
You should not delete or change any inventory transactions dated prior to an inventory distribution, as this can cause difficulties maintaining accurate inventory data.
