Receiving More than on PO from Warehouse Receipts

  • 1.  Receiving More than on PO from Warehouse Receipts

    Posted 09-13-2018 08:19 PM
    We recently implemented bins in Nav 2013. We often receive more than the PO. The rule of thumb is we don't question if it's less than 10%; we just increased the PO. My purchasing and receiving are complaining now because they have to delete the warehouse receipt before they can increase the PO. And they can't receive off the handheld if there is more than on the PO.

    I'm looking for some suggestions to make this easier. Anyone have any suggestions? Ultimately, I would like to allow the receivers to receive on the handheld if the QTY is within 10%, but then that would need to reflect on the PO.

    I'm also looking for suggestion on receiving G/L items (for example a tool that isn't going into inventory, but it goes through the receiving department.) Does anyone have their receivers receive these off handhelds?

    ​We had a similar situation with receipts.  We had our VAR do a customization that will update the PO with the higher amount if within a certain % during the posting of the Warehouse Receipt.

    We don't use handheld devices.

    ​Hey Josh,

    It doesn't look like there is any kind of setup to allow an overage.  As soon as the "Qty. to Receive" is updated to a higher value than the "Qty. Outanding" you will get this error.  I believe you would need a customization similar to what Brian is describing.

    You could have a setup filed in the Purchase and Paybables setup to set the Overage Percentage.  I would also track if the Quantity has already been increased by an overage so the user doesn't increase multiple times to get around the Percentage Tollerance.
