    Inventory Management: service 'Inventory definition (item-01)' does not create a Shelf report number

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 21

    Problem Symptoms:
    Service item-01 fails with error 'Failed to allocate Shelf Report Number'


    1. Add the counter 'last-shelf-rpt-num' to z52 via util g/2 in your ADM library
    2. Re-run service item-01

    Additional Information

    Once a Z30-SHELF-REPORT-NUMBER has been assigned to items, then that number can be used in running the p_item_09 (Inventory Summary) and p_item10 (Inventory Report).

    There is also a Z30-LAST-SHELF-REPORT-DATE.
    This is written by p_item_01, p_item_04, and p_item_05, but is just informational and is not used by the system in any special way.
