what is the best practice to process the items stocks ?

What I have tried:

i searched and i founded two method :

1- Is it better to create a single row for each item (depending on its properties) and increase the stock field in this row or decrease it depending on the process?

- item --- stock ---
- x    --- 5    ---

b>2-create a row (record) for each operation, ie, if a purchase occurs, a row is created and in the incoming field = 10, and if a sales occurs, outgoing(any other expression) = 5?

- item --- income --- outgoing ---
- x    --- 10     --- 0       ---
- x    --- 0      --- 5       ---

i noticed that method 1 cause problem with the stock when i used OnDuplicateKeyUpdate or INSERT IGNORE in MySqlBackup.NET - MySQL Backup Solution for C#, VB.NET, ASP.NET

When answering a question please:
  1. Read the question carefully.
  2. Understand that English isn't everyone's first language so be lenient of bad spelling and grammar.
  3. If a question is poorly phrased then either ask for clarification, ignore it, or edit the question and fix the problem. Insults are not welcome.
  4. Don't tell someone to read the manual. Chances are they have and don't get it. Provide an answer or move on to the next question.
