Form Details

The PHYS.E procedure is used to enter inventory quantities counted as a result of a physical count. Normally, the counts will be logged on the Physical Tags by the person(s) actually performing the physical count.

This procedure is set up to enter multiple tags on one screen, with the actual updating of the tags being performed when the Save command is selected. Until that command is completed, 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.

This procedure is also used to change tags which were entered incorrectly.

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 physical inventory is posted, the system will set the quantity to zero for you on all voided tags.

Changes to tags are allowed until they are posted to inventory, at which time no modifications are allowed.
