# Stock expiry projection - Help-

P

#### pierreeven.au

Dear all,
I have been searching the forums with no luck.

My issue is the following: We are extracting the current stock on hand by line:
one product can have a number of different batches with different expiry.
the goal is to determine how many units of this batch will be wrtiten off (will not be sold before expiry)
We always sale the product with the lowest expiry first. once that batch is exhausted, we start selling the next batch.
In order to simplify the issue, we assume that the forecasts are flat (same value sold every month)

What would make my life easier is to have the quantity of product that will expire (if any) on each line.

thanks a lot in advance for you precious help
