Material Ledger for Stock Transfer Postings


Hi All,

I have a question about the way material ledger is calculated for stock transfer postings (movement type 641). I will give an example to illustrate this issue:

Material A has a Standard cost of $10

Material B has a Standard cost of $8

During the month 100 units were transferred from material A to Material B. This created a financial posting as follows:

Credit Material A - $1000

Debit Material B - $800

Debit Price Difference $200

This price difference of $200 was used in the calculation of Actual cost for material B

However, the Actual Cost for Material A was $9. I would have expected the system to use this actual cost to calculate the difference to be posted to material B. Hence the difference used in Material B should have been $100 {(9 – 8) X 100} and not $200.

Has anyone had a similar issue, or know how the system resolves this (if at all)?

Points will be rewarded for relevance.
