Hello, 

When looking at inventory value per Q2, I discovered some articles with negative inventory value. This should not be possible since the "prevent negative inventory" function has been activated since our transition to business central, so i am sure that cannot be the reason. What else could cause negative inventory value. I have attached a screenshot of the spreadsheet below. Any advice is appreciated.

    When you reconcile your inventory i would recommend that you first reconcile it within Business Central before you export the data and refine them in Excel or another reporting tool.

    So you should run inventory reports in Business Central for the same time period to check the result you get there and see if that match what you have in Excel.

    Hi, From the column names, this looks like a customization.
    I think you can find some clues in Value Entries.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks.

    First where are you getting this information for your spreadsheet? Second if you could show the item ledger entries for the item in question we could probably provide a better answer.
