Problem Statement
When attempting to do Subinventory Transfer,
the following error occurs.

Error
APP-INV-05407: Quantity will drive inventory negative

Actual Behavior
User cannot transfer the expected quantity in one time,
but can transfer the same quantity if dividing the transfer into several times.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Inventory: Setup Organizations > Parameters
    Organization Parameter "Allow Negative Balances" is unchecked.

  2. Inventory Profile Option
    "INV: Override Neg for Backflush" is set to Yes. 
    INV: Override Neg for Backflush
    Indicates whether backflush transactions can drive the inventory negative even if the inventory organization parameter Allow Negative Balances is unchecked.
     
  3. System is showing below On-hand Quantity (Available To Transact: ATT Quantity) :
    Subinventory-A : 10
    Subinventory-B : 0
    Organization : 10

  4. Allocate Quantity=6 from Subinventory-B to a Work Order.

  5. After backflush transaction completes,
    System is showing below On-hand Quantity (Available To Transact: ATT Quantity) :
    Subinventory-A : 4
    Subinventory-B : -6
    Organization : 4
    The real Quantity of Subinventory-A is 10 and the system is showing 4.
    The real Quantity of Subinventory-B is -6 and the system is showing -6.
    The real Quantity of Organization is 4 (sum of Subinventory-A and Subinventory-B).
     
  6. Inventory: Transactions > Subinventory Transfer
    Try to transfer Quantity=6 from Subinventory-A to Subinventory-B which will not drive any subinventory negative,
    but the transfer is not allowed by Error(APP-INV-05407: Quantity will drive inventory negative).

  7. First, try to transfer Quantity=4 from Subinventory-A to Subinventory-B and it succeeds.
    System is showing below On-hand Quantity (Available To Transact: ATT Quantity) :
    Subinventory-A : 4
    Subinventory-B : -2
    Organization : 4
    The real Quantity of Subinventory-A is 6 and the system is showing 4.
    The real Quantity of Subinventory-B is -2 and the system is showing -2.
    The real Quantity of Organization is 4 (sum of Subinventory-A and Subinventory-B).
  8. Second, try to transfer Quantity=2 from Subinventory-A to Subinventory-B and it succeeds.
    System is showing below On-hand Quantity (Available To Transact: ATT Quantity) :
    Subinventory-A : 4
    Subinventory-B : 0
    Organization : 4
    The real Quantity of Subinventory-A is 4 and the system is showing 4.
    The real Quantity of Subinventory-B is 0 and the system is showing 0.
    The real Quantity of Organization is 4 (sum of Subinventory-A and Subinventory-B).
