Change material type



I am trying to change a material type from a raw to a semi finished good. My question is.... How do I handle the existing on hand balance for those RAW parts if a material type change is needed? My understanding is a part's material type cannot be changed if the part has existing on hand balance.

If I needed to zero out the existing on hand balance, then

i) what transactions I need to enter to remove the on hand balance before the material type change,

ii) what transactions to add back the on hand balance after the material type change, and

iii) how these transactions to be reflected in the general ledger?
