Form Details

The CYCLE.E procedure is used to enter inventory quantities counted as a result of a cycle count. Normally, the counts will be logged on the Cycle Count Sheet by the person actually performing the cycle count.

This procedure is set up to enter multiple tags on one screen, with the actual updating of the tags being performed when the File command is selected. Until that command is done, no tags are actually updated.

Along with the count entry, the initials of the person who performed the count and the date the count was actually done are entered. These two fields automatically default to the last data entered, eliminating the problem of repeatedly entering the same data.

If the count quantity is zero, you may change status to "C" and enter a quantity of zero. You can, also, change the status to "V". When the tags are posted to inventory, the system will set the quantity to zero on all voided tags.

This procedure is also used to change tags which were entered incorrectly, as well as to void tags which are not to be used.
