An Inventory Adjustment allows the user to adjust their inventory up or down by a specific number. If you find a single damaged unit and wish to remove it from inventory, you post an inventory adjustment for -1 to remove one from inventory. If you need to adjust your inventory up because you found 2 of an item that you did not know you had, you post an inventory adjustment for a positive 2 and that will increase your on hand quantity by 2. When needing to adjust another transaction type like an inventory receipt, make sure to use the same transaction type to correct or use the void inventory session function and recreate it properly.
