The program assigns a number to each production report that you posted in JIT600. You can use JIT600 to reference the production report that you want to update.

Infor LX & BPCS Finance Tip: Items without costs, CST101D

George Moroses 0 3561 Article rating: 5.0

This program generates an uncosted items listing for the specified facility and cost set. You can use this report as an exception listing to identify those items that are currently maintained at zero cost or new items that require entry prior to cost rollup in Cost Set Rollup, CST500.

If a facility-specific component cost does not exist for a parent being rolled up, zero cost is rolled up for the component. When a new parent item is being rolled up for the first time, the audit report for Cost Rollup, CST500, displays a warning wherever a component cost is zero. Rolling up the parent cost again does not display a message for zero component costs.

Access: Menu CST01

Tips: LN | Baan

One way to save space in your general ledger is to compress integration transactions. The transactions are combined into one ledger account number, and the detail is still available in the integration transactions sessions.

The compression is seen after the transactions are finalized. 

Compression is established in the mapping scheme by checking the box under the columns “Compression of Debit/Credit Transactions. This can only be done in a mapping scheme that is not activated.
