Location File Maintenance

Application Overview


The Location File Maintenance application maintains a convenient table of inventory locations, i.e., places where inventory is stored, such as warehouses or stock­rooms.  All receivings, issues, and transfers of inventory are made using the two‑character location number.  The description is used on reports, or on entry screens, where verification of a location is required.  All inventory locations used by your company must be entered into this file.  The package will not allow receivings, tran­sfers, or issues from locations where the item is not kept in stock.
