Hi, 

We are using SAP B1 9.2 and just went live. I just realised the issue with the negative balance of WIP account. After further investigation, it was mainly caused by the production orders with the negative balance on it.

How can we correct the balance?

Also, how should we set in the background to avoid any of such issue down the track?

Regards

Hello Ross,

Close the Production order, then the variance will be booked. This negative balance in WIP account will be passed to the FG Item value.

In your case it will reduce the FG Item cost.

You can check it on a test database and see the implication.

Thanks Ranijith,

I tried it in the test company but the system did not allow it to be processed due to lack of GL determination for WIP Variance Account.

The error message is

[IGN1] , 'No WIP Variance Account exists for item .' [Message 131-183]
