⦁ First, navigate to Vendors, then Inventory Activities then click & select Adjust Quantity/Value on Hand.
⦁ Next, type the name of the expense account where users can track inventory loss and shortages in the Adjustment Account field. In case, if they need to assign the expense to more than one account, type a separate adjustment for each account. In order to type additional adjustments, select Next.
⦁ Users may type the new quantity of each inventory item. They can also type the new quantity by entering the difference in the Qty Difference column. On order to enter a difference that reduces the quantity, type a minus sign before the number (for example, -25).

When you edit a value, you change the average cost of the items in stock. To edit the value, select the Value Adjustment checkbox. In the New Value column, enter the value for each inventory item whose value you want to change.
