Inventory Transfer is the common process in all types of industries. A transaction will be recorded for the inventory movements within the internal locations. There will be always two set of entries generated in GL for Inventory Transfers (IT) P4113, one is from From location and another is from To location.
Sometimes, the entries will not get properly created. There will be one sided transactions or the entries will get updated two or three times. Let's discuss on those issues in this post.
First Scenario (One Sided Transactions)
When there are multiple lines in the Inventory transfers, if the Invalid location error comes , the erroneous line will deleted and a new line will be added by the user. For this line From Location entries will not be updated. Issue was reported as a bug and it was fixed. The fix is available. Please refer to the document Not Updated From Location And Quantity But Updated To Location, When Using Delete Operation (Doc ID 1988441.1) and (Doc ID 2117264.1) to know more about this issue and the bug details.

Third Scenario (Additional One Sided Transactions Only in GL)
When entering Inventory Transfer (P4113) for a license plate item and when entering the incorrect quantity, Error 140LPN – Insufficient Quantity in LP is issued which is correct.
