FMS displaying previous value when refreshing by Total


I have a formatted search for a UDF that requires "Gross Profit (LC)" in its calculations but when I refresh regularly by either Document Total or Line Total it returns the previous gross profit value instead of the current one.

The reason I refresh by these values is because the FMS changes based on multiple conditions and this was suggested in a previous Forum post.


All the other fields used in the FMS return the correct values except for the Gross Profit. Here is the FMS I used to test the values returned for Gross Profit.

select $[$38.123.number]

Example of values returned:

Original Gross Profit for an item: 8.52

Gross Profit after change of unit price: 9.52

When you enter an item the UDF displays 0

Change the unit price the UDF displays 8.52

Change the unit price back the UDF displays 9.52

I have tested this in multiple DBs using SAP BO 8.81 PL: 07

I would like to know why it does this and if there is workaround to this problem?

Thank you for your time.

    have you tried setting it to update when the unit price changes? Does it have the same effect?
