  6. If the quantity you entered doesn't match what the Inventory has on record, the Recount Required notice will appearScreenshot 2022-12-29 at 11.03.33 AM.png. The Cycle Cost status will also change to RECOUNT REQUIREDYou will need to enter the quantity and cost again and then click on the Post Count icon.

15 of 72 states that 15 is the new quantity showing in inventory, against the 72 that were showing previously.  A discrepancy of -57.

22 of 1 shows that 22 is the new accepted count, and 1 is the old.  A discrepancy of +21.  Because this is an increase, the value of the inventory also goes up by the listed cost per part.
  1. After all the parts are counted, the cycle count will automatically change the status to CLOSED.
