Stock Ledger Mismatch

Stock Ledger Mismatch

A Stock Ledger Mismatch is used for showing inconsistency that occurs on stock movements for a company.

A mismatch occurs when an item is used at once with different parties while doing the same thing e.g. selling of the same item.

When mismatch occurs Inward or outward transactions related to Manufacturing, Purchasing, Selling, and Stock Transfers are recorded incorrectly in the Stock Ledger which then is reflected incorrectly in the Stock Ledger Report.

Mismatch reflects the quantity and value of stock issued, received, or transferred along with the stock item and its warehouse details.


We have an opening balance of 90 items i.e. chairs and we want to sell the chairs to three different counters assuming we have counter A, B, and C.

Counter A buys 5 chairs and it takes 14 seconds to complete the purchase cycle, counter B buys 10 chairs and it takes 9 seconds to complete the purchase cycle and counter C buys 2 chairs and it takes 4 seconds to complete the purchase cycle. Basically it should be 90 chairs less 2 chairs that took a shorter period equals to 88 chairs, Lessing 10 chairs equals to 78 chairs Lessing 5 chairs that took a longer time equals to 73 BUT what the system takes is (90-5)chairs=90chairs, (90-10)chairs=80chairs and (90-2)chairs=88chairs which is a wrong calculation.
