Journal lines, Inventory transfer (form) [AX 2012]

Updated: February 20, 2014

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

Click Inventory management > Journals > Item transactions > Transfer. Click the Lines button.

Use this form to move an item in an inventory dimension, for example when moving an item from one warehouse to another, or to change the batch number.

When you post this kind of journal, for one journal line, two inventory transactions are created for one journal line. The two transactions are an inventory receipt and an inventory issue. The on-hand inventories at the two warehouses will be changed.

Postings to general ledger occur in these cases:

  • Items are moved to another dimension, for example if items were originally registered by using color=black and are moved to color=red. Postings occur whether this is in the same site or whether the transfer is across sites.

  • Items are moved to another site, even if the inventory item dimensions are identical. This enables sites to have different costs for the same items.

The issue and receipt use different lot IDs.

You must, as a minimum, specify:

  • Date for the transfer

  • Item number

  • Quantity

  • Warehouse or other inventory dimension that the item is being moved from

  • Warehouse or other inventory dimension that the item is being moved to
