Yes we verified it in the Supplier list (Vendorpart Table)
Thanks for the suggestions. Sounds like it is a true but that was fixed in 409A
I'm not sure if anyone else has experienced this but I hope so.
On some parts the Purchasing factor does not calculate when PO suggestions is run.
for example I have a PartA which is a 48X96 piece of sheet metal.
We issue it in square feet and purchase it in sheets (each)
The factor is 32. This means if we order 1 sheet from the vendor 32 square feet goes into our inventory.
This works great for 95% of all our Sheet Metal but once in a while a part will not apply the factor in PO Suggestions. It will show up as 1 not 32.
I have verified it in both the Vendpart Table where the ratio can also be set up per supplier and in the Part Table.
No matter what I change in the Part Entry the Factor will not apply to these few parts. To make even more interesting...if I duplicate the part the new part shows the ratio perfectly in PO suggestions.....
This can be very frustrating when buyers are relying on that factor to be right. there must be another place the Factor is being stored that PO suggestions looks at.
Any help would be much appreciated.
