Reserve Items in Microsoft Dynamics NAV

This post explains how to Reserve Items in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. You can reserve items for the sales orders, purchase orders, service orders, assembly orders, and the production orders. You can reserve items on the inventory or inbound on an open document or the journal lines. You perform the work in Reservation window.

To reserve a specific serial or lot number

From outbound documents for item-tracked items, such as sales orders or production component lists, you can reserve specific serial or lot numbers. This may be relevant, for example, if you want production components from a particular lot to allow consistency with earlier production batches, or because a customer has requested a specific serial number.

This is referred to as a specific reservation because you reserve from the quantity of Item X that belongs to Lot X. If you simply reserve from quantities of Item X, then it is a normal, non-specific, reservation.

The following procedure is based on a sales order.

  1. Choose the Search for Page or Report icon, enter Sales Orders, and then choose the related link.
  2. Create a sales order line for an item-tracked item.
  3. Assign serial and lot numbers to the sales order line.
  4. On the sales order line, select the Reserve action.
  5. Select the Yes button to reserve specific serial or lot numbers.
  6. In the Item Tracking List window, select the serial and lot number merged that you have just assigned.
  7. Choose the OK button to open the Reservation window showing only supply with the specified item tracking number. If there are any non-particular reservations on any of the item tracking numbers that you have specified for this line, you are informed of the quantity that has already been reserved.
  8. Choose either the Auto Reserve or the Reserve from Current Line action to create the reservation on the specific item tracking numbers.
