Appears during Sales Daybook and Order Processing.
Because… The sales transaction would take system stock levels below zero for products to be processed in the transaction. The appearance of this warning is dependant on the Stock Parameter settings – see Allow negative stock settings in Stock Control Parameters – General Page.
Therefore… If the software is being used to manage actual levels of physical stock, this warning suggests that either the system stock levels are incorrect (as clearly actual physical stock cannot fall below zero) or that a stock replenishment order might be needed urgently to satisfy the transaction being entered.
Actions … Press ‘Yes‘ to continue to process or ‘No‘ to cancel entry of the transaction as appropriate. Advise your manager and/or stores or warehouse manager.
