Virtual Locations / Inventory loss  Inventory                          -38.00   -38.00

When I try to do a quantity update of this product through the Inventory Update OPENERP subtracts the amount I enter from Output / Stock.

Also do I need to do a stock move to balance out the virtual location inventory loss and why do I have a negative number there?

Thank you very much

OpenERP's inventory follows the rule of dual-entry inventory, just like dual-entry accounting. Practically, this means that you cannot make products appear or disappear magically somewhere. If you have a product increase somewhere, you need to have a product decrease somewhere else. And vice versa.

When you use the quantity update button and increase a quantity, you are not telling OpenERP where these products come from, therefore OpenERP will assume that you "found" them (eg. under a shelf) and the opposite entry will be the same as where you "lose" products, that is the Inventory loss virtual location.
