Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2016

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise SCM Inventory - Version 7.5 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Below is what you can read in the PeopleBooks about the Inactive, Hold, and Discontinued Item Status. Nothing is said about Counting Events so why are these Items being included in Counting Event created by the 'Event Creation' Process (INPCCREA) (navigation: Inventory, Inventory Counts, Prepare Counting Event, Create Counting Event)?

PeopleSoft Enterprise Managing Items 9.0 PeopleBook > Working with Items > Managing Inventory by Item Status > Defining Item Status

Hold
Items with a Hold status are restricted to warehouse movement, adjustment, return material authorization (RMA), return to vendor (RTV), receiving, and putaway transactions. You cannot place or fulfill material stock requests for items with a Hold status, nor can these items be used in planning, replenishment, production, purchase order, or requisition transactions. This status does not apply when you are creating orders in PeopleSoft Order Management.

Inactive
Items with Inactive status are restricted to warehouse movement transactions, adjustments, RMA and RTV transactions, and receiving transactions. You cannot place or fulfill orders for items with an Inactive status, nor can these items be used in planning, replenishment, production, purchase order, or requisition transactions. You can remove item records with an Inactive status from the system by using the Inventory Data Purge process (IN_PURGE).

Discontinue
The Discontinue item status enables you to use up (phase out) on-hand quantity of an item. For items with a Discontinue status, you can place and fulfill orders, and you can perform warehouse movement transactions, adjustments, receiving, and RMA and RTV transactions. However, these items cannot be used in planning, replenishment, production, purchase orders, or requisition transactions.
