Quantity available will go negative error when completing Physical Inventory

We are currently doing stocktakes in this system for the first time.  We have had a couple of counts error in the Physical Inventory Review screen when trying to Complete PI.  The error we get is ‘Updating Item ##Inventory ID## in warehouse ##warehouse## quantity available will go negative.’ 

As an example the book quantity is 3 and we are trying to post a physical quantity of 0.  We don’t allow items to go into negative however that is across the whole system.  This has happened on about four of five items out of thousands.  

Any ideas on why?  We have checked Inventory summary/allocations etc and nothing has been allocated. It is a rarely used part and has had the initial adjustment in, then a transfer that is pretty much it.

Thank you for the response.  We have our next stocktake this weekend, so will give this a try and will update this thread with the results.

Also make sure that any unposted transaction to inventory have been completed such as inventory adjustments, transfers, or issues.
