Hi, everyone! I have a question that just came up today on which I need some help. We use Standard costing, and are looking at a couple of invoices that have very different unit costs for the same part. When looking at the field help for the InvcDtl.LbrUnitCost and MtlUnitCost fields, Epicor says that the fields can be updated by COS/WIP Capture if it has not been run prior to invoicing. Below is the text from the InvcDtl.LbrUnitCost field. Does this mean that the unit costs on an Invoice line can change whenever COS/WIP runs, even after posting? Or will this calculation only be performed once if COS/WIP hasn’t run before the invoice is generated?
Labor Unit Cost. The cost is initially captured on the PartTran record for the shipments (MFG-CUS, STK-CUS). It is duplicated from the PartTran when invoiced. If shipped from inventory then it is the cost captured from the part master at time of shipment. If shipped from job it is calculated during the Calculate WIP/COS period end process. Note: the Calculate WIP/COS will also update this cost for invoiced job shipments which had been invoiced prior to having the costs calculated.
