Goal

Physical Inventory Count fails for LPN's in another location ie. there is more than one active tag with the same LPN. This can occur for the following reason:

LPNA is available in BULK/B1.1.1 and has generated the TAG.
While counting the TAG, the counter finds that LPN1A is available in CASE/C1.1.1 instead of BULK/B1.1.1.
While counting the physical tag through mobile by mistake the counter enters the subinventory/locator as TEST/T1.1.1 instead of CASE/C1.1.1 and realises that they have entered the wrong location.
They therefore try to count the same LPN 'LPNA' by giving the location as CASE/C1.1.1.
Now the system has created 3 tags as follows:

1. LPNA ---- BULK/B1.1.1 ---------- As per the system
2. LPNA ---- TEST/T1.1.1 ---------- Dynamic Tag through mobile
3. LPNA ---- CASE/C1.1.1 --------- Instead of updating the 2nd Tag the system has created a 3rd tag.

Out of the 3 tags TAG 1 will be void as we didn't count that tag.
The remaining 2 tags (2 & 3) are both active.
Now when trying to perform an adjustment the system will fail as an LPN can't reside in more than one location.
