ADOBE STATEMENT of INTENT:
The primary goal of Adobe’s Channel Partner Inventory Reporting program is to ensure that the TOTAL physical inventory of Adobe product
held at distributor / reseller sites is accurately reported on a weekly basis, such that this information can be reliably used to manage distributor /
reseller inventory levels.
NOTES: (1) The sum of the quantities reported as “On-Hand”, “In-Float” and “Returns” should equal to TOTAL physical inventory of Adobe product.
(2) No negative numbers are to be reported in any quantity field.
(3) For every part number reported, at least one of the quantities must be greater than zero.
(4) Do not report part numbers which have zero quantities for all quantity fields.
This will result in smaller data transmissions and savings on all VAN charges.
File Format Note: All reporting files uploaded via the web application must be Tab-Delimited Text Files.
