RE: Ghost inventory in bins

I saw a question similar to this, but it didn’t really provide an answer that was helpful in my situation. We have several items that show quantity available in the bin under inventory detail, but there are zero quantities on hand (as proven by physical count). I am not clear as to why this happens, I suspect it is related to questionable adjustments or transfers? If I do an inventory adjustment, it will then show negative quantities on hand. How can I simply remove the inventory in these bins to clean it up?

Thanks! I really have no idea how this is happening, and the warehouse manager can’t explain it to me either. So my goal right now is to clean it up and moving forward I hope to catch it when it happens so I can correct whatever behavior is causing this. I ended up using the NS suggested approach, which is to turn off ‘use bins’ on the item record, do an inventory adjustment that gets rid of the mismatch (sets location on hand to equal bin on hand), then edit item record again to turn on ‘use bins’, and do a second inventory adjustment to set quantity to the correct amount.
