How to bring the WIP opening balance

Hi all,

We have entered the Raw material opening balance by entering all item's opening qty and rate.

Now I have following questions

1.How to introduce opening balance of WIP in to the system ?

2.In case we wish to sale FG items how to create the opening stock of FG items with what value ?

3.How to transfer/reduce WIP opening balance ?

Our financial year is from 1st April 2008 to 31st March 2009

we have entered raw material's opening balance as of 1st April 2008.

Dear Samir,

The WIP is an account used when there a production orders created in the system. Do you have any production orders?

Some information about this account is in the documentation for the production orders:

AND in the continuous stock documentation

I do not understand what you mean with 'FG items'. Normally, if you have to add an item with quantity in stock already before creating any documents you can use the option

Initial quantity in Stock - Stock Transaction - Initial quantity, stock taking and stock posting.

Kind Regards,
