Entering Count Results Using Batch Input

You can enter large quantities of inventory data into the WMS on a single screen using batch input. For example, you enter inventory count results using batch input if you have processed the inventory in an external system, and then want to transfer the count results into the WMS.

To be able to enter count results in the WMS using batch input, you create a program that transfers the data in the appropriate batch input format, as a batch input session, to the Enter Count Results transaction (LI11).


Note, that entry via batch input using the new transaction LI211N no longer works.

Entering Count Results Using RF Devices

Using RF devices in your warehouse makes entering inventory count results easier. For more information, see Mobile Data Entry ® Physical Inventory.


The physical inventory count is complete.

The system sets the Inv. Status indicator to from A (Not counted) to Z (Counted) in the system inventory record.
