When an item is put on hold, the system will allocate the quantity put on hold. This hold quantity will appear as allocated when doing stock status inquiries, reports, entering orders, etc. The expiration date serves as a flag for purging and does not automatically de-allocated the quantity. It is crucial that the purge process be run daily to reflect accurate Qty. Available information. This purge function should be set up as a daily-deferred process to eliminate the purge maintenance requirement.
