Hi Al,

My recollection is that in BPCS V4.05CD, an "O" Opening Balance Transaction with
the "* No Tag" in the ITH Comment field is triggered by a Location Inventory
(ILI) record that has an Onhand (in the Opening Balance field), but it does not
have a corresponding Inventory Tag in the IPH file entered through Tag
Entry/Update (INV600).
You should also see that the Quantity on this ITH record is 0.

That is, this Item/Whse/Lot/Location has an Opening Balance, but it was not
counted through the Physical Inventory Subsystem. BPCS creates an "O"
Transaction with a Quantity=0 to indicate that this record was not counted
during the Physical Inventory. Therefore, its Opening Balance remained

I just had a similar situation with a client.

Please let me know if my explanation matches your observations.

Subject: [BPCS-L] * No Tag

Out of a curiosity itch, don't desperately need to know, can anyone tell me
what triggers * No Tag "O" transaction into ITH during Physical Inventory?

We are on BPCS 405 CD, did a physical inventory at end of 2013. We printed
tags on items with non-zero inventory.

9,874 = count tags (when all done)

3,220 = count * No Tag records

13,094 = total of above

20,331 = count IWI immediately before dump tags

20,703 = count IWI immediately after dump tags

My latest suspicion is that the * No Tag records were for items with zero
inventory before & after physical, but had allocations for orders, in the
facilities being inventoried.
