Bin None and Location None

We are running into an issue with items showing on a search that shows – None – as the Bin Number and Location.  They do not show as inventory in our location warehouse which makes sense due to them not having a location.  The Bin Putaway Worksheet does not have them on it.  I have tried Suite Answers but to no avail.  It appears they were on old PO’s that were closed out that had been received but not billed.  All item receipts for these part numbers had a location and bin number associated.  Has anyone had this issue and was able to solve it?  I’m looking for any possible direction to solving this.  Thank you in advance.

Yes, I have seen this issue before. It can occur when items are received into inventory but not put away into a bin. This can happen for a variety of reasons, such as:

  • The items were received but not put away due to a lack of space in the bins.
  • The items were received but not put away because they were needed immediately for production or another purpose.
  • The items were received but not put away due to a mistake in the receiving process.

Once the items are received into inventory, they will show up in a search with a location of “None” and a bin number of “None.” This is because the system does not know where the items are physically located in the warehouse.

To resolve this issue, you need to put the items away into a bin. You can do this manually or by using a bar code scanner.

If you are putting the items away manually, you will need to locate the items in the warehouse and then scan them into the correct bin.

If you are using a bar code scanner, you will need to create a bin putaway worksheet. The bin putaway worksheet will tell you which items to put away and which bin to put them in.

Once you have put the items away into a bin, their location and bin number will be updated in the system.
