We are trying to inactive a branch and cannot because of a warehouse error we're getting “The ‘XXXX’ branch of the company cannot be set as inactive because the following related warehouses exist: ‘XXXX’”. Is there any issues/ramifications if we move the warehouse to a different branch?

Hi @jamesonbalingit86 

There wont be any issues changing branch on warehouse profile. No branch based setting takes effect on warehouse transactions. Hence, even while changing, you don't get any prompt or warning message in Acumatica. 

Hope this helps,

How would you resolve this error if the company does not use or have the inventory module?

I know the Author asked about doing this, but is this really the recommended way when Inactivating a Branch?

Warehouses cannot be deleted, but the Branch cannot be deactivated if INACTIVE Warehouses relate to the Branch. 

Not the biggest fan of moving obsolete Warehouses to an Active Branch that wasn’t related to the Warehouse to begin with.
