Inventory Unit Cost

Posted on by 14
We are having issues with the "locked" Unit Cost field not updating. I've tried doing the Adjust Item Costs/Prices (& Adjust Cost Item Entries) manually, but no changes occur. Our inventory set up is selected to automatically take place. We have some items with negative inventory that have not yet been received, but the cost has changed.

    Hi, if it is the latest version (BC24), you can try the new feature below.
    Business Central 2024 wave 1 (BC24): Inventory Cost Adjustment tool (new Inventory Cost Adjustment page)
    Hope this helps.

    Hey there,
    You can also use an "Item Revaluation Journals" to change item prices. If you aren't using average cost this would be the way to go. If you are, you can
    take out the whole inventory with a revaluation and then put it back in at the desired price.

    1. Check purchase invoices booked with correct cost and currencies difference 
    2. Click on the unit cost field it will drill down to next page there please check the unit cost transaction wise.
    3. Check there is no charge item applied against the item 
    4. run item revaluation to correct the cost showing wrong value

    You need to run Adjust Cost Item Entries, not Adjust Item Costs/Prices. Alternatively, turn on Automatic Cost Adjustment in the Inventory Setup Page.
