Need suggestions on V5.1

You can do that - have you corrected your purchase order or did you
correct the value of the material... if you have then you can't return
the value cause it will be at the new value. You can do a job
adjustment on material to put the cost into the job.

Subject: [Vantage] Need suggestions on V5.1



It this point it is not likely we will migrate much further, but I have
a
question nonetheless.

We had a new purchasing manager that took it upon himself to issue a
"zero"
$ PO for a large value of raw stock. Since he was in charge of raw
material
receiving, he did not make a transaction in Vantage to receive it
either.
The material was immediately sent to another Outside Source (via PO) to
get
cut. This time the material was received in on the PO line and the PO
closed. The material went into inventory with only the value of the
cutting
(which is 1/10) the value of what the material should be. We have since
issued that material to jobs and some has been scrapped during our
processes. We now see that since it was purchased on a PO with no value
(and not received in on that PO anyway), the material seems to only have

the smaller value.

Is there a way to adjust the value of the material in WIP jobs? My
thought
was to "unissue" the material from the job and then adjust the inventory

value, then "re-issue" it back to the same job. Would this work?

Any other ideas are appreciated.

Tim,

Your idea would work and it would also correct the inventory values of
any onhand quantities remaining.

However, you could also adjust the cost using the Job Adjustment
function. We don't use it often, but sometimes it can come in handy.

Mike
