Merge Stock Codes

Scroll Prev Top Next More


You cannot actually merge stock codes. The following is the closest process so that you can keep your stock history.


If there is no history, deactive the old stock code, and enter the new stock code into the Superseded By field on the Details tab.

The following outlines the steps to take:

Change the old stock code by placing an X in front of it (ie. as per above example. This puts it at the bottom of lists.

Transfer stock by Stock Adjust Down on the old part and Stock Adjust Up on the new part.

Link the old part to a Non Report group, ie. Old Stock. This makes it easy to find all old stock.

Deactivate the old stock code (untick the Active box on the top right of the Stock header field) and select the Details tab. Record the new stock code in the Superseded By field.

When Jim2 searches for stock, it checks for active stock first. If the stock has been deactivated and you try to use it, you will see the following screen appear:
