Freezing an Inventory Item in Sage 100 ERP

Often, the first step in taking a physical inventory in Sage 100 ERP is freezing the physical count. When attempting to do this, though, a message may appear saying the program will not allow the inventory to be frozen or that freezing items may create unexpected variances. Some examples include:

freeze1

freeze2

freeze3

freeze4

freeze5

freeze6

freeze7

freeze8

Follow these steps to help ensure you don’t receive those messages:

• Open “Master Console” and make sure no one has “Inventory Maintenance” open.
• Be sure the “Sales Order” invoicing is complete and all invoices are posted.
• Complete and post the “Purchase Order” receipt of goods and receipt of invoice.
• Update all inventory transactions and close “Inventory Maintenance.”
• Update and post all receipts from the “Return Merchandise Authorization” module.
• Update and post all production transactions in the “Bill of Material” and “Work Order” modules.

With those items checked and processed, inventory freezing should proceed quickly and without messages.
