You want to perform inventory counting on the main warehouse for the targeted item that you have in AX. Suppose the quantity counted is 30 units. You may create a counting journal line either registering it manually or automatically generating it, filtering on your item and the main warehouse. After inserting the counted quantity, you should post the journal and check the quantity on hand.

In the column Counted of the counting journal line, you want to enter the counted quantity of 51 units. Dynamics AX immediately calculates the difference of two units comparing the counted quantity to the posted physical quantity. As shown in Figure-B, the posted physical quantity shows in the column On-hand and the counting difference shows in the column Quantity.
