Use this form to define how the adjustment of transactions should be updated. Before posting, you must enter a date for the posting. The specification in the ledger can be a total per item-group or per item-number. If you do not update the ledger, you will not be able to reconcile the value of the inventory with the ledger. Before you post adjustments, it is important that the information corresponds with the guidelines specified for the ledger. You can type a note regarding the adjustment.
