Goal

We are sending Goods from one Operating Unit to another, and in the receiving OU we have a business need to be able to hold both the calculated cost and the incoming Transfer Price for an Item.

In fact it goes further than simply identifying the Transfer Price of the received Item (which we know we can see from the Actual Cost Transactions inquiry) - for example:

 - say Operating Unit 'A' transfers Item X at transfer price 5 to OU 'B'
 - the Actual Cost of the Item in OU 'A' is 4, but there is a profit of 1 built into the Transfer Price List
 - in OU 'B' Item X is consumed in Item Y

We need the system to calculate the cost of Y based on consumption of Item X at 4 as well as at 5, and for both Costs to be maintained.

In the above scenario, is it possible to maintain two Item Cost values for the same Item, Period and Cost Type combination, one including the Transfer Price and other being based on the Actual Cost of the Item in the sending Organization?
