Splitting Lines

In warehouse put-aways, movements, or picks, and in inventory put-aways and inventory picks, the program suggests bins for the picking or putting away of items. It may sometimes be the case that the actual quantity in the bin suggested by the program is not sufficient, or that there is not enough room in the suggested bin to put away the required quantity.  In these cases, you need to split the line,so that the items for one line are either taken from or placed into more than one bin.

To Split Lines:

  1. In the document line, reduce the quantity in the Qty. to Handle field on the line for which you want to reduce the number of items.

  2. Click Functions, Split Line. A new line appears, which is a copy of the original line, except that the Qty. to Handle field contains the quantity that you removed from the original line.

  3. Assign an appropriate bin (and zone, if using directed put-away and pick) to this new line, or continue splitting the line as necessary until you find appropriate bins for all of the quantity.


If the location uses directed put-away and pick and you split the lines, you must be familiar with the warehouse and able to choose a bin that matches the storage requirements of the item and that fulfills the general requirements of the warehouse document. For example, you would not split a line on a pick document and place some items in the bulk storage.
