Cannot Create Transfer Order

editSubscribe (0) ShareShare
Posted on by 7

We cannot create a transfer order and get the error below:  

Transfer Order Nos. must have a value in Inventory Setup: Primary Key=. It cannot be zero or empty.

Is there something we need to change with our location settings?  

I've tried to turn the field Use As In-Transit off and on and it does not work 

I've also tried changing the location mandatory field off and on but it does not help 

The solution to this is to go to inventory setup and uncheck location mandatory field.

    You have to provide Transfer Order Nos. field in Inventory Setup page based on which Transfer Order Number will be generated
