Question:

When performing the Inventory Year-End Closing routine in the Inventory Year-End Closing window, I choose Discontinued Items for my Remove option; however, the discontinued items did not get removed. Why?



Answer:

If any of the discontinued items are components of kits, they will first need to be removed as components of the kits. You can use the Component Report to identify the components. To print the Component Report, point to Inventory on the Reports menu, point to Items , and then click Kit List . To remove the item from the kit, use the Item Kit Maintenance window .To open the Item Kit Maintenance window, click Inventory on the Cards menu, and then click Kits . Select the kit item and find the discontinued item component. Highlight the item, and choose Edit - Delete Row to remove it as a component. Save the change you made.

Next, check if the items are finished goods or components of bills of materials. The BM Component Where-Used Report can be used to identify which discontinued items are components of bills of materials. To print the BM Component Where-Used report, point to Inventory on the Reports menu, point to Setup , and then click Component Where Used . In the report option, the following Bill Status check boxes and Component Status check boxes should be selected:

• Active
• Pending
• Obsolete


The BM Bill of Materials Report can be used to find which discontinued items are bills of materials. To print the BM Bill of Materials Report, point to Inventory on the Reports menu, point to Setup , and then click Single-Level Bill of Materials . In the report option, the following Bill Status check boxes and Component Status check boxes should be selected: • Active
• Pending
• Obsolete


If any of the discontinued items are components of a bill of materials, the components need to be removed from the bills. This is true for all statuses of the bills and components, including Active, Pending, and Obsolete. The components can be removed in the Bill of Materials Maintenance window. To open the Bill of Materials Maintenance window, point to Inventory on the Cards menu, and then click Bill of Materials . In the Bill Number list, click the bill, click the status in the Status list, and then find the component in the scrolling window. Click the component line, click Edit , and then click Delete Row . Click Save to save the change.


If any of the discontinued items are bills of materials, the bill needs to be deleted. This is true for all bill statuses, including Active, Pending, and Obsolete. The bill can be deleted in the Bill of Materials Maintenance window. To open the Bill of Materials Maintenance window, point to Inventory on the Cards menu, and then click Bill of Materials . In the Bill Number list, click the bill, click the status in the Status list, and then click Delete .
