Negative Weighted Average Cost due to Posting Senders Loss (SL) With the Shipment Cost

(Doc ID 2414853.1)

Last updated on JULY 16, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Merchandising System - Version 13.2.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

While closing the transfer, it picks the setup SL from SYSTEM_OPTIONS which means in case of short receipts it should be posting senders loss and the tran_code 30 posted at receiving location would be reversed. It is reversed with the same shipment cost , without any posting to adjust WAC. This makes the WAC go negative in few cases.
 
 Steps To Recreate:

1. Create transfer using Retail Merchandising System(RMS) UI.
2. Ship the same transfer.
3. Change WAC from 310.53 to 100 at the receiving location store.
4. Close shipped transfer.
5. Note that WAC at receiving location goes negative (-321.06).
