There are unexpected move orders in Move Orders form (INVTOMAI) with type = 'Put Away', whereas WMS
product is not installed. When querying on move orders, users find extra move orders that were not created for them.

These move orders are created by the system at the time receiving.  

Why are move orders created for receipt of Purchase Orders?


  1. Create and get approved a Standard purchase order
         Set receiving routing = Standard Receipt or Inspection Required
  2. Transact a PO Receipt to receive your item
  3. Go to Create Move Orders form and Query on todays' records
         A one line move order is shown for the received PO and item.
        Creation date corresponds to the receive date.
        Quantity = quantity received in PO Receipts form
  4. Transact a Deliver transaction in Receiving Transactions form
  5. Repeat step 3
        The same is shown with Quantity Delivered = Quantity Received
