STK-UKN Blank Title 85767

Chris

Thanks for the input. We are using the PUR-INS for receipt, INS-STK for
passed inspection, STK-UKN for the miscellaneous issue for some expensed
items although we are not using reason codes. It is frustrating how ridged
vantage can be, sometimes what you want it to do it simply will not......

Paul,
Although it's quite a convoluted process, you can inspect items at
receiving and have them (eventually) charged to an expense account. We are
doing this for a few items but we are on ver 8.0. I wasn't involved during
6.1 so I don't know the exact details for that version. I can describe our
process though and hopefully, it's backward compatible.

You place the purchase order as buy to "Inventory", and the Inspection
Required flag should be activated if the part class has Inspection Required.
I'm pretty sure you can flag it for inspection even if the part class is not
but this relies on the user to do the right thing. I would recommend using a
part class that is already flagged for this part. You probably want to tie
the part to a specific expense account anyway. So when the part is received,
it goes into the inspection queue at receiving. Once it passes inspection,
it would go to inventory. Then you'll need one last miscellaneous issue
transaction to go from inventory to expense. Make sure the reason code is
tied to the right expense account. This can be the same account as the part
class or not, doesn't really matter though. Those transactions would be as
follows:

PUR-INS for receipt
INS-STK for passed inspection
STK-UKN for the miscellaneous issue

Although the financial transactions would be complete if you setup the
part class with the expense account, the part will still show up on the
books in inventory (stock status) until you do the final transaction. And it
would seem that you could just purchase directly to expense but the business
logic (?) won't allow expense items to be inspected. It puts them straight
PUR-UKN no matter if the inspection is flagged or not (at least in ver
8.00).

Anyway, hopefully some of that translates or at least gives you some ideas
to test out.

Regards,

Chris Clunn

We are using vantage ver 6.0, under this version of vantage how can I mark a
part as requiring inspection and once inspected have it go STK-UKN? I know
this can be done if the part does not require inspection but can it be done
if inspection is required? Thanks in advance.
