Yesterday, I was responding to a support ticket where the unit cost was coming as $0 for an item-site combination when using PO Generator.
Ideally there are quite a few options available for cost selection for an item-site combination when using the Purchase Order Generator module. It can be found from the Purchase Order Generator Item Maintenance window which can be opened from Cards >> Inventory >> Item Resource Planning >> Enter or Select an Item >> PO Gen Item button.
Note: The options on tis window is enabled ONLY if we have selected the Order Policy on the Item Resource Planning window for the specific item and site combination as “Use PO Gen”.
The various options for cost selection for the item-site combination are
- Vendor Last Originating Invoice Cost – The cost on the suggested purchase order should be the cost from the most recent invoice from the vendor for the item.
- Item Current Cost – The cost on suggested purchase orders should come from the Current Cost from the Item Maintenance window.
- Item Standard Cost – The cost on suggested purchase orders should come from the Standard Cost from the Item Maintenance window.
- Specified Cost – The cost on suggested purchase orders should be an amount you enter. If you choose Specified Cost, enter the cost in functional currency. (If this cost is left as $0, the unit cost when the PO is generated will default to $0 for this item.
We can also verify the other options for the item (for the purchase order generation) on this window and make changes as necessary.
Hope this helps the community…
Until next post!
