(RUS) Generate a reverse transaction journal using the Copy Journal function [AX 2012]

Updated: February 4, 2014

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

The Copy function simplifies generation of reverse transaction journals by letting you copy lines from an existing journal into a new journal. If reverse transactions are canceled by using the journal copy function, the resulting transactions are reflected as direct transactions. They are not marked as reverse.

  1. Click Inventory management > Journals > Item transactions > Movement.


    Click Inventory management > Journals > Item transactions > Inventory adjustment.


    Click Inventory management > Journals > Item transactions > Transfer.


    Click Inventory management > Journals > Item transactions > Bills of materials.


    For more information, see "Inventory journal (form)" in the Applications and Business Processes Help.

  2. In the Inventory journal form, select the inventory journal line to be reversed.

  3. Click Functions > Copy to open the Copy lines to a new journal form.

  4. In the Journal field, select the journal to be copied.

  5. In the Description field, enter a brief description of the journal.

  6. In the Transaction date field, enter the date for the new journal lines.


    If this field is left blank, the lines will be created with the same dates as the lines in the original journal.

  7. In the Detail level field, select the level of detail to be copied. The options are:

    • Journal Lines – New journal lines will be copied from the original journal.

    • Inventory Transactions – New journal lines will be copied from the lines for inventory transactions in the original journal.

  8. Select the Invert sign check box so that quantities in the new journal lines appear with the opposite sign.

  9. Select the Storno check box so that the new journal lines are the reverse of the original lines.


    You can select this check box only if the Invert sign check box is selected.

  10. Select the Automarking check box to link created issue transactions with original transactions, or to determine return lots from original transactions.


    This check box is selected by default. To set up marking and return functions, you must clear this check box.

  11. Click ОK to copy the journal lines.


    When you copy journals with the reversing entry parameter activated, links to the inventory transactions that were used to create the journal line are automatically created and saved. If the Inventory Transactions parameter is activated, any inventory transactions with the receipt status Registered and inventory issue transactions with the status Reserved are created in the new journal. This prevents dimension changes due to inventory transactions prior to journal posting (for example, as a result of an automatic reservation).
