Hopefully, by now every company that uses the inventory module in Dynamics 365 Business Central (aka Dynamics NAV) knows that they MUST run the Adjust Cost – Item Entries process.
If not, please check out my other articles on the subject on how to properly care for the inventory module in Dynamics 365 Business Central (formerly Dynamics NAV)
While asking companies to run the adjust cost process, some people will report that they experience unwanted entries made to the previous accounting periods.
Why? The reason is because the adjust cost process will always adjust to the date of the original sales transaction (unless specified otherwise).
For example, it’s 6/30/18 and you run the adjust cost process. If you haven’t run this process in a while, and there was a sales transaction that occurred in 3/15/18 that has not been adjusted yet, the resulting adjusting entry will be on 3/15/18.
This will cause problems if you’ve already closed the books for March.
This is where the Allow Posting From field from the General Ledger Setup screen comes to the rescue.
If you set the Allow Posting From on the General Ledger Setup, any adjust entries that are BEFORE the Allow Posting From date will have same posting date as the Allow Posting From field.
In our example above, it’s 6/30/18 and you run the adjust cost process. In addition, you set the Allow Posting From to 6/1/18. If there was a sales transaction that occurred in 3/15/18 that has not been adjusted yet, the resulting adjusting entry will be posted on 6/1/18.
Setting the Allow Posting From should be done after you close the month out, NOT before.
I’ve seen situations where the user changed the Allow Posting From BEFORE the adjust cost was ran. So all of the adjusting entries were posted in the current period instead of the period that they should’ve been in.
Just little things to help make your life (hopefully) easier.
