Repost Sales/Purchase/Stock Transactions


Compared to Basic Multi UOM (which produces stock reports only in smallest UOM), Advance Multi UOM produces stock reports in multiple UOM.

If you have been using Basic Multi UOM before purchasing Advanced Multi UOM module, your stock balance (transacted earlier) is reported in smallest UOM. To re-categorise these 'old' stock according to their UOM respectively (as provided by Advanced Multi UOM module), you need to run a Repost.


To run Repost,

Go to Start > All Programs > AutoCount Accounting > AutoCount Accounting Management Studio

Go to Data Consistency > Repost Sales/Purchase/Stock Transactions






Select relevant items,

Click on Start Repost.







Stock Card Report before Repost


Though there were stock balances for both UOM (PCS and BOX), the report will either show smallest UOM (PCS), OR

show the default Report UOM (one UOM at one time, according to the setting of default Report UOM at Stock Item Maintenance).







Stock Card Report After Repost


The report will show each of UOM separately (BOX, PCS...) and their transaction respectively.  (also see More Options below}






Click on More Options and You may choose from 3 UOM options.

1. Show Multi UOM (by default this is selected)

2. Show Default Report UOM

3. Show Smallest UOM







New in version 1.5.020, the system supports multiple UOM with same UOM Rate. During transaction you may select any UOM and the stock reports will show the respective UOMs accordingly... (refer to New & Tips > 15020 Multiple UOM with same UOM rate.)





Purchase Item with Multi UOM


Go to Purchase > Purchase Invoice

Click on Create a New Purchase Invoice,
