Transaction / Detail Enquiries - Stock Control

This option gives you the ability to configure the display of the stock transaction enquiries available for each stock record. On selection of this option you are able to set the authority levels for access to each transaction enquiry.

Blanking the authority level disables that particular transaction enquiry option otherwise set as appropriate (remember values are from 0-9 where 0 is the highest and 9 is the lowest authority level). After setting the appropriate levels you can then configure the display items for these options.

Omit Works Order if No Assembly Code

If this option is set then the WORKS option on the Stock Enquiry is suppressed where the stock record has not been updated with an assembly code.

Default Batch Quantity

The Stock Enquiry lists all batch/serial items for the appropriate stock. Setting this option allows you to restrict the batches displayed based on a non-zero quantity selection. Options available are ‘P-Physical’, ‘R-Reserved’, ‘O-On Order’ and ‘F-Free’. Leave blank for no filters.

Once you have set, or otherwise, the filter the system displays the options to configure the transaction enquiries.
