Hi Mapics ML:

One of our new production control employees was using Inventory Management's 
File Maintenance to change the Warehouse Stock Location Code (WHSLC) for Item 
Numbers (due to a reorganization of our Stock Room) and he asked me, "Why is 
the WHSLC field found in both the Item Balance (ITEMBL) and Item Master A 
(ITEMASA) files?"

If a company has multiple warehouses, it can have independent WHSLC for a given 
Item Number located within each separate warehouse.  Also, Mapics uses the 
WHSLC fom ITEMBL to report the Stock Location on the perpetual inventory 
Transaction History Inquiry (AMIS15) screen.

But what does Mapics do with WHSLC in the ITEMASA file?  In a single warehouse 
situation, is there any problem when WHSLC is not the same (due to an inputting 
error) in both ITEMBL and ITEMASA?

I look forward to your responces.
