Great Plain (GP2013) - Voids in RM and SOP

If a void is in RM, should there be a corresponding void in SOP?  I am looking at Victoria's script and want to use it but need to know if there's a void in RM, should there be a void in SOP for that same customer?

No, if a void is in RM there will not be a corresponding void in SOP. The reason is that the connection between SOP and RM is one way: from SOP to RM. RM never goes back to SOP, similarly to how the GL never goes back to a subledger.

So if you void in RM the corresponding SOP transaction will not be voided. And if you void in SOP, the RM transaction will never be created in the first place.

So why does your SQL view exist?  There is one that shows voids in one but not in the other. I'm confused :)

Are you referring to this: http://victoriayudin.com/2014/04/28/sql-script-for-comparing-voids-between-rm-and-sop-in-dynamics-gp/ ?

That's there so that you can quickly find out what was voided in RM, but originated in SOP. Users don't often realize that they should not be voiding transactions that originated in SOP...and the system does not stop them, only gives them a warning that most users ignore.

If you're not using inventory, there is typically no harm in this except if you're using SOP for reporting (see next paragraph). If you're actually using inventory, the inventory module will not know that inventory should be added back, so there is going to be a reconciling issue between the subledger and the GL for SOP transactions voided in RM.

For reporting - if you're voiding in RM but reporting from SOP, to get accurate reporting you may want to either (a) manually update the SOP transactions to show they are voided or (b) exclude the voided transactions from your reporting by checking what's voided in RM.

Hope this helps.
