I have not been able to find a successful method for this yet.

Wrong stock item was issued to a project/cost budget. The correct item has since been issued, but trying to remove or reverse the wrong item out of the project. I can do a receipt or adjustment back into stock on the inventory side if needed, but I am unable to determine how to reverse the issue project transaction to correct the project.


Thank you,

Following. Likewise, interested in others experience with this type of transaction and generally about the management of INVENTORY with respect to PROJECTS. 

You’re situation sounds like it will be a common situation for others. 

@gbrazelton14 - I found that you could go to the inventory Issues and click on the Batch Nbr. and the new *** (three dots menu) in 2021 R2 includes the option to “reverse” and “reclassify” which may be the answer for you. I’ve not done any testing on reversing inventory “issues” to a Project (yet).

Thank you @johnshaddix38  - I will need to check that out in 21 R2 - I think what I finally did was a Reason Code (type Receipt, account was actually the COGS account used in the original issue) Looking forward if 21 R2 has the slicker Reverse option.

We now do a two step process to Return to Warehouse:

We do a RETURN Issue. We create a new Lot/Serial Nbr. (the old one as used at time of Issue and no longer exists) - this un-Issues the item. This keeps it on the original project. I then transfer from the project to X (our warehouse).


If you are also returning it to the vendor - I open the original PO Receipt. Select the item to return, return the item. Now it is no longer on the PO.
