Symptoms

On : 12.1.3 version, Subledger Accounting

A few Equipment items were loaded when we enabled the organization for WMS at the beginning of the Nov-17 period. The organization is also OPM enabled (standard costing). No costs were loaded for these items as it was not deemed necessary.

We are getting an error "Transactions not posted since no cost found for Item: XXX, Whse: YYY, Cost Whse: YYY, Date: 25-NOV-2017." on the Accounting Pre-processor.

We thought to load zero cost, but we are unable to tick the "Inventory Asset Value" flag.
Getting the error
APP-INV-05507: You cannot update this field when:
- On-hand quantity exists
- Pending transactions exist
- Uncosted transactions exist

So basically, we cannot update the items while there are uncosted transactions, and we cannot cost the transactions before we update the items.

Can we apply a datafix to fix these items?

ERROR
