Reversing the Output of a Dynamics NAV Released Production Order

ArcherPoint How-To Blog: Step-by-step instructions on how to perform specific tasks in Microsoft Dynamics NAVWe are asked from time to time how to reverse the output of a Dynamics NAV-released Production Order.

The need to do this probably was caused by a mistake made when posting the original output.

To illustrate the issue, we created a Dynamics NAV-released Production Order:

Then, using the Dynamics NAV Production Journal or Output Journal, we posted the output of a quantity of 1 to Inventory:

To reverse the output, we use the Dynamics NAV Output Journal.

We enter the Released Production Order number, the Item Number, the Last Operation Number in the Routing, and the quantity as a negative number:

Then we must select the ‘Applies to Entry’ that was created when we posted the original output:

After posting the Output Journal and looking at the Item Ledger Entries for this Dynamics NAV Released Production Order, we see that the original output has been reversed.
