Batches and Cost

Hello All,

We are presently using batch and FIFO method of valuation.

We are having problems getting an exact gross profit. When we select a batch, it should also select the cost associated with that batch, but it does not, it selects the FIFO cost. Does anyone know a way that we can get the cost based on the selected batch and not on a FIFO method. I know that standard will not work nor will Moving average.

Here is an example

Batch 1 - ABC @ 10$

Batch 2 - ABC @ 20$

When I make an Invoice for item ABC, select Batch 2, my cost should be 20 not 10. Right now it will go and retrieve the Batch 1 cost even if I select that the items come from Batch 2.

Thanks in advance.

if you want to get the pricing according to batches then you have to do some different settings.

whatever i got from your post is that you want valuation of each batch differently. for this you have activate split valuation and the criteria would be batch.

for this please follow split valuation settings and the link below

use the standard setting for batch and you will see your problem is solved. please revert back if need more help
