Stocktake - PDA

This function allows you to perform a Direct Stocktake on a PDA. A 'Direct' stocktake is equivalent to a 'Store' stocktake but does NOT add items to a stocktake before counting starts. You manually add the items to the stocktake as you count the stock. This type of stocktake is useful when you want to spot check an area within a store.
