I did not notice that when I imported the items of a Supplier Quotation from a csv file, the conversion factor (it was my mistake in the import csv file) got incrementing values from 1 to 82 in the 82 items imported.
I checked everything except the conversion factor (I didn’t even know what it was), and made the Purchase Order from the Supplier Quotation and then the Purchase Receipt based on the Purchase Order.
Now the inventory is a mess because of this.
Can I modify the conversion factor in order to have the inventory fixed?
Well, I guess that is the fun of making mistakes you were talking about
Because this is my first time using an ERP, I suppose that part of the complexity means that the mistakes can’t be easily fixed, but there must be a way to make things right. It wouldn’t make sense because input mistakes are part of every business. Even the incoming rate in the Stock Ledger Entry is totally distorted because of this.
I found this in the docs:
What happens when the Purchase Receipt is “Submitted”?
A Stock Ledger Entry is created for each Item adding the Item in the Warehouse by the “Accepted Quantity” If you have rejections, a Stock Ledger Entry is made for each Rejection. The “Pending Quantity” is updated in the Purchase Order.
I’ll make a snapshot and change the Stock Ledger Entry and the conversion factor directly in the database to see what happens.
I couldn’t believe that ERPNext (such an extraordinary piece of software), did not allow anybody to make any mistake. Thankfully there is a very easy way to resolve such mistakes: Cancel and Amend the submitted document.
