Items Display Zero Quantity with a Remaining Value on the Valuation Report in Sage 100


Items display zero quantity with a remaining value on the valuation report. There is no remaining negative tier for the FIFO item in Sage 100.


An inventory adjustment was made and the cost on the transaction was overridden, usually with a zero cost. This transaction can be seen on the Inventory Detail Transaction Report for the period when it was posted.
Two adjustments are required to address this.

  1. First enter a positive adjustment to match the errant entry, and override the cost to match as well; for example, if the overridden cost was zero, enter zero.
  2. Post the Adjustment
  3. Then enter a negative quantity adjustment and select the open positive tier with the remaining cost.
  4. Post the second adjustment to bring the quantity back to zero and relieve the outstanding cost tier.
