JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Inventory Management - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


 When the Locations Definition (P41001) setup is changed from a Left justification to a Right justification, the Location Field Update (R41821) is not updating Location File (F41021) with the new justification.

After changing the Location Format, the following error will appear during Inventory Transactions such as Adjustments (P4114) and Transfers (P4113) preventing transactions in locations where the Location Format was changed.

Quantity Invalid (Error ID 0855)
CAUSE . . . . Quantity entered is greater than quantity available.
RESOLUTION. . Check Quantity available and reenter quantity ordered.
  1. Go into the Branch Location Definition (P41001 Form W41001A)
  2. Format is set as follows
    1. Aisle = 2 Characters Left Justified
    2. Bin = 2 Characters Left Justified
    3. Code 3 =  2 Characters Left Justified
  3. Before changing Location Format, Location 01/D /30 has 29 on hand
  4. Do not change the length but change the Justification as follows;   
    1. Aisle = 2 Characters Left Justified
    2. Bin = 2 Characters Right Justified
    3. Code 3 = 2 Characters Right Justified
  5. Run Location Field Update (R41821) against the branch.
  6. After the changes, Location 01/D /30 was changed to 01/ D/30
  7. Attempt to transfer inventory from  01/ D/30 which should have 29 units on-hand
  8. System returns a Quantity Invalid Error (0855)
  9. The error occurs because location 01/ D/30, is treated as a new location with zero on hand.
