E1: 43: Enhancement Purchase Order Receipt (P4312) Does Not Write Journal Entries for Units When Item Cost is Zero (Doc ID 2876650.1)

Last updated on JUNE 20, 2022

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Procurement and Subcontract Management - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


PO Receipts (P4312) in E1 do not generate journal entries for units when the item cost is zero and standard costing is being used. However, at the time of receipt, both a General Ledger Batch Number (ICU) along with an OV Receipt Number (DOC) are assigned and provided. Once the purchase order has been received, the batch is deleted from the Batch Header table (F0011) and from the Account Ledger (F0911) table. The Item Ledger/Cardex retains the OV Receipt Number (DOC).

In World, the system generates an inventory journal entry when the standard cost for an item is zero and reports units in Journal Entry detail (F0911), which is then used to track the OV Receipt transactions for the inventory quantity. Additionally, a Batch Header is created in the Batch Header table (F0011). Reports are then run over the F0911 selecting on the inventory G/L Account to get the AA and AU balances.

Without the zero cost journal entry detail, it is not possible to account for the inventory receipt.

1. Create a purchased item but do not add a Standard Cost (P4101/P4102).
2. Create a purchase order (P4311).
3. Receive the purchase order (P4312) and write down the associated OV Number and Batch Number that is generated.
4. Run G/L Receipts Post (R09801) and the associated report is blank. No journal entry was created and the batch is deleted.
