Clear Item Accumulators

Clear Item Accumulators

Application Overview


The Inventory Item File contains eight running totals (accumulators), which need to be cleared, from time to time, such as at the start of a new period or a new year, and this application performs that function. This procedure also updates the current period field in I/M Setup. 


If you use Clear Item Accumulators application to clear period‑to‑date accumulators then you may not use the Recalculate Reorder Fields application to do forecasting.


When you clear the period-to-date fields, it will move the current period amounts in the Inventory Item File to the Inventory History File, and update the current period.  By clearing these period-to-date fields during your period ending procedures, a history report and a history graph may be created which depicts PTD quantity sold, PTD Sales Amount, PTD usage and PTD cost amount.
