Negative Receipts on Purchase Orders

Version 2.01b US. This end user has purchase orders that have a large purchase line quantity with multiple receipts posted against the line. Occasionally, they post a receipt in error. To correct, they are creating a new purchase line with a negative quantity and posting a negative quantity receipt. This new line cannot be invoiced however. Two questions: No.1 - How can they correct the problem? No.2 - How can they handle receiving errors in a better way in the future given that receiving errors do happen? Thanks, James

How about using a credit memo document to post the corrections? Dave Studebaker Liberty Grove Software A Navision Services Partner

Update after some further testing: If there is a quantity to receive and invoice for the same item for which a negative receipt line exists and there is a net positive quantity for the two lines, then the purchase order can be invoiced. The two lines net to a positive invoice amount. If this negative receipt line is the only quantity not invoiced then create a new purchase line for a positive quantity to offset and then receive and invoice. The invoice will be for zero cost as a result. Then do a Purchase Credit Memo to correct the fictitious receipt just entered. What would be nice would be to have the ability to “unreceive” on a line.
