Will back entries generate the opening stock balance?

Since I do not have the opening stock figure as at 1st Jan 2017, I enter the stock valuation as at 15th March 2017. Let’s say it is US$15,000.

Then I input all the back-dated stock entries from 1st Jan 2017 - 15th March 2017 which is -US$2,000, will ERPnext system calculate the open stock balance as US$13,000?

If you use Stock Reconciliation to set the opening stock, then it will not change the stock balance / value after 15th March for the back dated entries.

If you have passed a Journal Entry, then the values will change.
