More Information


Note Before you follow the instructions in this article, make sure that you have a complete backup copy of the database that you can restore if a problem occurs.

If you want inventory quantities to use a bin other than the system-generated AUTOCREATE bin, you must assign a default bin.

Determine the default bin option that you want to use

To do this, follow one of these options:

Option 1

Assign a default bin.
  1. On the Cards menu, point to Inventory, and then click Bin/Sites. Verify that the appropriate bins have been created in the Site Bin Maintenance window.
  2. On the Cards menu, point to Inventory, and then click Quantities/Sites.
  3. In the Item Number list, click an item number.
  4. In the Sites area, click Site ID, and then in the Sites list, click a site.
  5. In the Bin field, type a bin to be used as the default bin for this site.
  6. Click Save.



    Note The item quantities for each site are stored in the Item Quantity Master table ( IV00102).

Option 2

Use the system-generated AUTOCREATE bin.
