Object documentationWarehouse Sublevel Codes - Setup Window Locate this document in the navigation structure


Use this window to set up different codes for each warehouse sublevel.

With actual businesses, a big warehouse is often divided into several levels of subunits, and the lowest level of subunit is the actual bin location where the goods are stored. In order to identify each bin location with a unique code, SAP Business One requires you to use the codes of the warehouse and warehouse sublevels to compose the bin location codes.

Example Example

Warehouse A has the following levels of subunits:

  • Warehouse sublevel 1 – Wing

    Sublevel codes – WINGEAST and WINGWEST, which refer to the east and west wings in the warehouse, respectively.

  • Warehouse sublevel 2 – Section

    Sublevel codes – SECTIONA and SECTIONB, which represent section A and B in each wing.

  • Warehouse sublevel 3 – Shelf

    Sublevel codes – SHELF01 and SHELF02, which stand for shelf 01 and 02 in each section.

    Shelf is the smallest unit of space in the warehouse, which also represents the physical location of the bin.

To indicate the eight bin locations (shelves), SAP Business One lets you define the following bin location codes with the warehouse and warehouse sublevel codes:









    Note Note

    The separator - between the warehouse and warehouse sublevel codes is defined in Warehouses - Setup: Bin Locations Tab. By default, the bin location code separator is a hyphen ”-”.

    End of the note.
End of the example.
