The Incept From Bin Count menu is used to enter parts inventory files from a bin list, print a list of the inventory files, and update the files to the Master Inventory.

Click the source you want to select.
Use the Enter Physical Inventory button to open the Inception From Bin Count screen, where you can enter the parts files. You may exit the screen and continue to add parts files later as long as you do not update the inventory files to the Master Inventory.

In Bin Location, type the bin number for the parts you are going to enter. Do not include the shelf or drawer. The field can contain up to three characters.

Step 11. In On Hand, type the quantity in stock. This is the current quantity in stock from your pad. Changes in the on-hand quantities because of sales and restocking after the pad was sent in should be made after the inception is complete.
Step 12. Use the 12-Weeks Sales field to record the quantity of this part you sold within the last 12 weeks.
Step 13. In Shelf, type the shelf location within the bin where the part is located. The shelf is usually an alpha character (A to Z).

Step 15. In Last Sale, type the date when the part was last sold.
Step 16. In Last Stock, type the date when the part was last stocked.

Step 18. Click Save to save the part information.
Step 19. The screen will clear, and the Bin Location field will retain the bin number for the last part you entered so you can enter more parts for this bin. Continue to add parts to this bin.
Step 20. When you're ready to enter parts for the next bin number, click Clear Screen For Next BIN. The screen clears completely.
Step 21. Type the next bin number and begin adding parts for that bin.
