Remaining Quantity is not equal to Quantity

Posted on by 7

Hi! I am Using Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013.

I just wanna ask. I want to cancel a Receiving Report but as soon as I "Undo Receipt" the Item Ledger entry, it shows that the Remaining Quantity must be equal to a specific number but it turns out that it is not equal.

Is there a way for me to edit the Quantity Remaining so that I can easily Undo the Receipt? 

Or should I do some adjustments?

Thank you very much

    Hi, I think the problem is you have used it.

    You have to return the used part as well. For example, if it is a sales order, the posted sales shipment must be cancelled.

    Hope this helps.

    from the description, it seems you partially received an item. For example, purchased 10 and posted receipt for 4, with 6 as remaining. Now you want to undo receipt and Nav tells you the remaining item must be 5, which should be 6? also I assume you haven't invoiced/putaway/ or sold the received items?
