Inventory items can be blocked manually. They can be blocked automatically when they are a part of a quality inspection process. This topic deals only with the manual blocking and unblocking of inventory items.

For information about how to block items through an inspection process, see About inventory blocking.

Block inventory items manually

  1. Click Inventory management > Periodic > Inventory blocking.

  2. Press CTRL+N to create a new blocking transaction, and in the Item number field, select the item that you want to block.

  3. In the Quantity field, enter the quantity that you want to block.

    NoteNote

    If the item that you want to block has a specific serial number as indicated on the Inventory dimensions FastTab, you can only block a quantity of one.

  4. If you want to include the blocked quantity in planning activities as an expected on-hand quantity, select the Expected receipts check box.

Unblock inventory items manually

  1. Click Inventory management > Periodic > Inventory blocking.

  2. Select the blocking transaction for the inventory items that you want to unblock, and click the Delete button or press ALT+F9 to delete the transaction.

    TipTip

    If you change a dimension on the Inventory dimensions FastTab, you delete the existing blocking transaction and replace it with a blocking transaction that includes the item quantity with the new dimension.

    If you want to unblock only part of a blocked quantity, you can change the quantity in the Quantity field in the Inventory blocking form.
