How to query for bin location/warehouse history for item?

0 Kudos

Warehoues in SAP Business One either use bin locations or not. I need to know the stock history for a specific item in a specific bin. I'm interested when stock for item in that specific bin was at f.e. 1x item A1 in location WH1.L1 at which document caused/resulted in that stock amout.

Same for the case that the item is in a warehouse that is not organized by stock locations.

I use the following tables to calculate the stock amount at a specific inventory log message.

Case bin locations enabled:

  1. OIVL - Warehouse Journal (InQty, OutQty)
  2. OWHS - Warehouses
  3. OBTL - Bin Transaction log
  4. OBIN - Bin Locations

Case bin locations disabled:

  1. OIVL - Warehouse Journal (InQty, OutQty)
  2. OWHS - Warehouses

As far as i can see this catches all inventory transactions besides a stock transfer inside a single warehouse (OIVL stays untouched). That is my problem here. Is there an easy way to sum up stock amount (InQty/OutQty) per item/per bin location/at transaction? Now i would ressort to using OILM and check the OILM-ActionType and tables OIVL and OBTL in addition.

Thanks for any hint.

For stock movement, you can refer to tables as following:

OITL, ITL1, OILM: transaction log

OBTN: batch number

OBIN: bin location

OIVL, IVL1: inventory value

You can have a look at some queries in my forum to see if they are helpful or not.

Hope this helps,
