Change an Item From LOT to NOLOT

Technote (FAQ)


Is there a way to change a lotted item to a non lotted item?


Lotted items have expiration dates and regular items do not, so they cannot be used interchangeably in all circumstances.


When an item is added to storeroom with zero balance, no invbalances record is written at this point and the LOTTYPE value is editable in this circumstance. If you add a positive balance, an invbalances record is inserted and this makes the LOTTYPE readonly.

The only time that an item can be changed from NOLOT to LOT is BEFORE a positive balance is added in the Item record in the Inventory application. Once a positive balance is added to the item, then the LOTTYPE field becomes read-only and you cannot change its value from LOT to NOLOT or vice-versa
