Unable to set a minus Qty for Item's Status to Become Out of Stock

Unable to set a minus Qty for Item's Status to Become Out of Stock

Hope someone can help as i can't find any solutions when searching.
I am unable to set a minus Qty for Item's Status to Become Out of Stock (in product inventory and global settings) it lets me enter it but once it is saved it goes back to zero (positive values work OK).

Magento 1.9.31

Thanks

Hi @better,

There is no need to set a negative number for quantity to set the item as out of stock.

You can change the item status to "Out of Stock" in the "Inventory" tab of the "Product Edit" page.

There you will find the "Stock Availability" dropdown to set the stock status for the product.

Thank Gabriel,

Thant not what i am after i need to allow the customer to order more than i have in stock in our main warehouse but only allow them to order the maximum amount our supplier holds for us in reserve. So i need to have a negative value to be entered.
