Feature details

If you discover a mistake in a quantity after you’ve posted a transfer order, as long as the shipment isn’t received you can easily correct the quantity. On the Posted Transfer Shipment page, the Undo Shipment action creates corrective lines:

  • The value in the Quantity Shipped field is decreased by the quantity you’ve undone.
  • The Qty. to Ship is increased by the quantity you’ve undone.
  • The Correction checkbox is selected for the lines.

If the quantity was shipped in a warehouse shipment, a corrective line is created in the posted warehouse shipment.

To complete the correction, reopen the transfer order, enter the correct quantity, and then post the order. If you’re using a warehouse shipment to ship the order, create and post a new warehouse shipment.


  • You can’t undo a posted transfer shipment if the item is reserved. To do that, you’ll have to cancel the reservation.
  • You can’t undo a transfer shipment line if there were receipts associated with the related transfer order line. Therefore, you can’t undo transfer shipments for transfer orders that allow direct transfers.
