First, my Sample database, and my XYZ, Inc databases have an error starting or else I'd test this myself.

The question is, what happens if I have an item on a sales order with a negative quantity?  I have a customer that is purchasing some new materials, and would like to return some rpeviosuly purchased items.  currently I listed the returned items on the sales order at a negative sales order quantity, at a reduced price - the intent is to put them back into sellable inventory at a lower cost than the original sell price.
I am not sure what is going to happen when I hit the Issue button.  Will my onhand inventory go up as desired? Will the Unit Price on the sales order be the cost associated for inventory value purposes?
 
If this isn't a valid method, how do I process a return from a customer and put the inventory back in stock?

You cannot sell negative number of units.  Receive the returned units back, by using direct receive. Input Sales Order number for the receiving reference. Or you can adjust the original shipment. To see how to do it, go to Help menu, Intermetiate, Adjust Shipped Sales Orders chapter.
