Once you enter and save your cycle counts, Oracle Inventory determines whether any adjustments need to be made depending on the approval options and tolerances you set when you defined the cycle count.
If you turned the Automatic Recount option on when you defined your cycle count, Inventory automatically submits recount requests for items that are outside the limits of the approval tolerances you specify. Inventory submits recounts as many times as necessary, limited by the maximum automatic recounts you specify for the cycle count. After you reach the maximum number of recounts, Inventory holds the count for approval. Any count request with the Recount status automatically appears on the next cycle count listing.
You can also manually request recounts when you are approving adjustments. The count request for which you want a recount is also automatically included in the next cycle count listing.
Attention: When generating the cycle count listing, you must include a from date far enough back to include the recount’s
original count date, or it is not on the report.
Approving Cycle Counts Held for Approval
Employees with access to the Count Adjustments Approvals Summary window can query, request the recount of, or approve cycle counts pending approval. When you select the Find button, you can query all counts or only those pending approval. You can then approve adjustments, recount an item in question, reject the count or take no action until further investigation.
To approve a count check:
Select Approved to approve the selected count entry and post the adjustment to the transaction manager for processing.
To reject a count check:
Select Rejected to reject the selected count record. An adjustment is not posted. No further processing of this count entry takes place.
To request a recount check:
Select Recount to process a recount request for the selected count request. An adjustment is not posted.
To display count history information:
Select the Count History button to open the Count History window for the current item. For the current item, this window displays count and variance information for the current, prior, and first counts.
To open the Count Adjustment Approvals window:
Select the Open button to open the Count Adjustment Approvals window for the current line. This window is a combination block which you can use to view and enter approval and adjustment information for the current line instead of using the Count Adjustment Approvals Summary window.
