Community Care and Share: Negative Quantity in Transaction Saved Search

edited Jul 6, 2023 2:11PM in Accounting / ERP

There are times when the Quantity and Amount of a specific item in a Transaction Saved Search shows a Negative value, even if you are expecting it to show as positive

The most common reason is: the GL accounts are reversed under the Item Record’s Accounting tab.

The normal account used for Item Accounts should be as follows:

  • COGS Account field = COGS Account type
  • Income Account field = Income Account type

It is possible that the accounts are interchanged as follows:

  • COGS Account field = Income Account type
  • Income Account field = COGS Account type

For example, I have an item which the Income Account field is populated with another account type (Expense). It seems that the display is based on the expected GL impact for a sales transaction.

Howdy, Stranger!
