Conducting Standard Cost Changes Despite Unposted Purchasing Invoices

John Ellis

We have several items for which we need to conduct Standard Cost Changes, within Microsoft Dynamics GP.

GP will not let us do so, however, since there are unposted Purchasing Invoices remaining for these items.

Has anyone found an alternative method, perhaps, of conducting changes to Standard Cost for inventory items that are within unposted Purchasing transactions?

I'm trying to understand your scenario.
You have a purchase order for x widgets at suppliers price, after generating the P/O you get a notice that there was a price change. You now want to update the price to reflect the new price details.
My thinking is that you have to post then do the updates OR cancel that P/O and then update the price and then generate a new P/O.
