Journal lines, Inventory movement (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 > Movement. Click Lines.

Use this form to move items from one inventory to another. Posting this kind of journal generates inventory receipts or issues.

When you create journal lines, inventory posting lines are generated. When the lines are posted, physical and financial receipts or issues are registered. This causes the inventory level and value to change, and related general ledger transactions to be posted to the general ledger.

In this form, you must specify the following information:

  • Date for the transaction

  • Item number

  • Quantity

  • Cost price

  • Offset account in the general ledger

  • Configuration table of the item (if you are using these)

  • Dimensions that you set up as primary storage dimensions for the item in the Storage dimension groups form in Product information management

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.

The tabs and controls that were added to this form for the Warehouse management features in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 are not described in this topic. For information about these features, see Warehouse management.
