Multiple G/L Class Codes for an Item

Michelle D.

We have the following requirement:

Item 123456 in branch/plant A needs to have G/L Class Code XXXX (for actual
costs) AND G/L Class Code IN30 (for standard costs).

This requirement is the result of items that are in development and then
need to be transitioned to production. So, for a period of time (sometimes
years), the same item will be costed two different ways (actual cost and
standard cost) depending on the work order.

Right now, the only solution we see is to create another branch/plant.
However, we already have 3 different branch/plants and do not want to setup
and maintain yet another one.

Does anyone have any other ideas?

Thank you,

Michelle,

The way I have seen this handled (item in development, then in production)
is to assign a suffix or prefix to the item number or a different item
number to the development item or the production item.

Maybe another location / lot number.
The GL class is also stored in F41021.

David,

Thanks for the thought, however, various FAA and other industry standard
rules and regs don't allow 2 different item numbers for the same item.

Michelle,
You may have a situation like us where simply having two different locations with different g/l codes did not work. my company wanted to attach different codes depending on who we were selling the object to. for example if it was a service part we wanted one code and for a production part sale another g/l code was used for the sale.
what we did was to set up the item master with a bogus code that would always error out when a sales order was entered making the user decide what code to use. when i say bogus i mean that it was a valid code when entering the item master but was not valid at the branch level.
i know it's an odd solution but it did work for us.

That is your best solution. We had 20 plus BP at my last employer and did
not see any problems maintaing them. The other solution is to have 2 items.
One for development and one for production, We used both solutions.

Dave,

I tried doing this - added a new bogus G/L Class Code (UDC 41 9). Then
changed the item branch/plant to the new code and also changed the primary
location to the new code. Then I deleted it from the UDC.

When I enter a purchase order, it gives me an error and I fill in the class
code that I want. So far, so good.

However, when I do the purchase order receipt, it is taking the class code
from the branch/plant even though that class code is no longer valid!!!

I've tried every combination, including making the item master class code
invalid also.

I bet I could probably find a SAR for this.

Thanks anyway.
Michelle

Re: RE: Multiple G/L Class Codes for an Item

I think you may be right. we really were only concerned with the sales side of the transaction not the purchasing side of it.
good luck,

Hi Michelle,

Were you able to find a solution for this? do you still remember what you did 7 years ago? :)

Thanks,

Sorry, Ahmad, I never received an email notification that I had a reply to this thread or any private messages. I'm trying to remember this issue and resolution - it was a REALLY long time ago (and 2 employers ago!). We may have created a new Cost branch. I'm sorry I can't be of any assistance.
