Updated: February 4, 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. On the Inventory journal form select a journal and click Lines.

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, 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 the following situations:

  • 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.

At a minimum, you must specify the following:

  • Date for the transfer

  • Item number

  • Quantity

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

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

The information is specific to Process manufacturing production and logistics.
