Goods Issue total different to Journal Entry Total

Hi Experts

I have come across a difference on totals between the creating Goods Issue and the Journal Entry against it. At the moment the user posts the Goods Issue and the total is 19 531 323.98 and when looking at the Journal Entry the total shows 19 499 434.50 a difference of 31 889.50; is there any reason why this would be, as the Stock Offset - Decrease Account and Stock Accounts are all defined under the Warehouse G/L Account Determination.

The client uses the Standard Price Stock System, they do use negative inventory and all items G/L Methods are set to "Warehouse", Valuation System "Standard"; the Goods Issue created was done manually and not by the DTW.

Has anyone come across this before where the totals do not match?

Hi Kurt Walters,

When negative inventory allowed, that will cause many troubles like this. Because the logic for regular inventory not working any more, the total mismatch will be happen from time to time.
