The warehouse location in the Item Master is not used at all for
transactions. You may decide to build queries to check the location fields
but if you do you should use the ITEMBL rather than the ITEMASA files.
For transactions the Item Balance is the one checked (assuming you have a
controlled warehouse) and defaulted in.
For virtually every transaction you MUST specify a warehouse and thus a
location is selected.
In the case of an uncontrolled warehouse the locations are not used for
transaction purposes but do appear on things like manufacturing pick lists
and can be very useful there (these too are based on the Item Balance and
not the Item Master).
There is no issues with the locations being different in the Item Master and
Balance files.
Good luck with your locations and warehouses.

If you have any questions regrdig what I've said please drop me a line at
