Lot Tracing In Vantage 8.03.305K

Yeb, make sure you test, verify the cost adjustments/balances. Ensure
that you that you will not be using lot costing/ if you are using it
presently.

Does anyone know a work-around for this please:-

As part of the evolution of implementing Vantage we have changed our
views regarding the lot tracing of certain parts ( ok, ok, some idiot
decided to lot trace fasteners, but that's another story! ). These
parts have some lots already recorded against them, but in the future
we want to turn off the lot tracing capability.

It appears we can't. So, once a single lot has been recorded against
the part, the part is lot traced for evermore... :o(

Do I have to create new part numbers to get me out of this, or is there
a clever trick I have missed ?

Thanks in advance,

Nick Taylor
Adjust the lot quantities to zero. Switch off lot tracking/costing.
Set the cost to what ever method and unit cost. adjust quantities
back in. There could be a cost variance/amount sitting in cost
adjustments depending on the changes in cost.

Thanks for that. I presume you are referring to any on-hand balances
in inventory ? I need to adjust the quantities out, change the lot
traced flag, and then adjust the quantities back in again, right?
