When you select the location screen a new allocation will be created. By default, CATS uses the minimum of the unallocated units on the sale item and the unallocated units on the location screen for the allocation. If no unallocated material exists on either the sale or location screen then the allocation will be created with zero units.

The allocation dialog displays the allocation status of the sale item [1] as well as a list of the location screens it is allocated to [2]. You can modify the allocations by changing the value in the “amount” column [3]. You can also change the displayed basis on each item or on all the items [4].

The overall change in allocation for this sale item is displayed at the bottom of the dialog [5]. Click on the button labeled “Apply” to save the changes. Click on the button labeled “Close” to close the dialog and return to the sale contract main screen.
