    2. Process all computer transactions that affect inventory quantities.

    3. On the Physical Inventory menu perform the Select Cycles for Freeze task to select all or a portion (by specifying one or more cycle codes) of the inventory to be counted.  This creates a “freeze” file of the on-hand quantities.

    6. Enter the physical counts using the Physical Count Entry task.
