(IND) Journal lines, Inventory movement (modified form) [AX 2012]

Updated: February 4, 2014

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

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 configuration tables

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


    The controls that are described in this topic apply only to your country/region. For full documentation of this form, see the following topic or topics:
