What is the difference between running a physical inventory for Active Items Only vs. one for All Products with the criteria Active Only?
- The Active status on the Product Master indicates the individual product status, such as Active, Inactive, or Discontinued.
The Active status on the Physical Inventory refers to products that are active on a sales order, warehouse transfer, purchase order, or in stock. They may have any product status as indicated in the Product Master.
This level of granularity enables you to filter out potentially thousands of products that are not in inventory and not active on a transaction of some kind. Often, these are products that were created, purchased, and sold once.
