Deleting Inventory Adjustments

We are using the reckon Accounts plus 2016 programme and entering in all products. We have had a few problems with the entering of our stock, as an inventory adjustment is being entered every time an item is purchased, and along with a bill being entered, this is double affecting the inventory. Is there anyway that we can delete all of the inventory adjustment transactions that have been made?

Welcome to the Reckon community Music Room Shoes.

When you activate the Inventory module in Reckon Accounts (Edit > Preferences > Items & Inventory > Co Pref > Inventory is active) your inventory is automatically managed through your Purchase and Sale transactions.  There is no need for you to do any thing else.  As a start please review the operation of Items in the User guide.

Transactions can only be deleted one at a time.  Create yourself a report to list only your Inventory Adjustment transactions:
  1. Reports > Custom Transaction Detail Report
  2. Modify Report > filter
  3. In the Filter box click on Transaction Type
  4. In the Transaction Type box, choose Inventory Adjustment
  5. Click OK to display the report
  6. In the Dates box, select All to see all transactions processed
  7. double click on the most recent transaction to open it and press Ctrl+D to delete it.  
Do create a backup before you start this process so that you can come back to this point if your actions do not produce the outcome you are after.  

Also, these articles may be of help for other issues you may encounter due to the way you have managed your inventories:

Inventory on Hand on Item List does not match Adjust Quantity/Value on Hand form

Inventory levels are wrong after processing a refund from a supplier

Deleting Inventory transactions may produce unexpected results on your accounts, so you may want to consult an Accredited Partner to help you out.  

Hope this helps.
