  1. If you have physical inventory available, but AX is showing no available quantities, you are are behind with stock intake or production order finishing, or you need to transfer stock from one warehouse / location to another. If you use negative physical inventory and allow for this scenario you will mess up your stock valuation if you are using any other valuation method than standard price. When using Lifo / Fifo / weighted average, do not allow for physical negative inventory, but make sure you have processed al purchase orders and production orders. Financial negative stock is a different matter …

    1. Yes, right. This parameter is sensitive for inventory value calculation. The decision whether to select or clear this parameter must be taken with the utmost care to prevent incorrect use
      of the functionality.
