LOCATION UPDATE
This screen updates the ITEM CODEs rows. Before changing a ROW from one ITEM Code to other ITEM CODE, remember to swap both nos, for ex ITEM CODE M2306 is assigned to
ROWs 3,9 and 10 and ITEM CODE M2304 is assigned to ROW 6 and 11 and for time being you need to Store ITEM CODE M2304 in ROW 10 (which is already assigned to M2304),
then you need to update M2304 ROW1 = 6, ROW2 = 10, ROW3 = 11 and M2306 ROW1=3, ROW2 = 6 and ROW3 = 0.
