Symptoms

Changing a PO line in a future period causes the commitment in the original period to be cleared. Commitments must remain consistent in past periods as they can be part of the profit recognition calculation. The GL date on both the new commitment and the reversing entry for the prior period should be the GL date the user entered. The reason for this is that commitment integrity should be maintained in past periods. Clearing a commitment in a prior period is retroactively making a change that actually occurred in the current period. In Job Cost, this is most critical for audit verification since commitments are a source for profit recognition.
