How to receive a delivery without stocking it

Hello ! In my company, I have to buy consumable products like screws. I need to register the purchase order when I buy some, for the accounting. If the purchase order contains also a stockable product like a graphic card, how can I receive the delivery, with the graphic card appearing in the inventory evaluation, and the screws not appearing in there.

Thanks for your help.

Just set up the screw product as non stockable


I have no experience with V9.

Consumable seems to be correct.

A quant - as far as I understood the logic - is a view of a product inventory by dates or costings (?); so that the pickings can be taken out at the right cost (based on the inventory valuation choosen (LIFO or preferably FIFO); therefore it seems possible that you product which was initially set up as stockable had generated a quant which is still there after you changed from stockable to consumable!

Sorry I cannot go further on helping you

Thank you. But how to find this setting ? I can specify not as stockable but as consumable, I did it. But the article still appear in the Quants. Is there really a setting "non stockable" ? Thanks to explain me. I work on 9.0 by the way.
