A stock error is whenever a count for a specific item increases from one inventory to the next, without a delivery to account for the increase. Another name for this is "negative consumption".
This can also be attributed to a miscount from a previous inventory, or an error in a delivery.
When submitting your inventory, you will be notified of any potential stock errors.
**Note - Don't worry about stock errors for individual locations, for example, "Main Bar". You should only be concerned with a stock error if it shows during the overall inventory review.
In the example above, the Corona Extra could have:
- Not been counted in the Previous Inventory
- A delivery for this item was not added, or was dated incorrectly
For the Pelee Island Shiraz Cabernet, it shows there was a delivery, but it is possible it was received as 1 unit instead of a case.
Having a stock error won't prevent you from submitting the inventory, but you should take steps to correct it after the inventory, or before you submit.
