ID99 - Update inventory items Standard Cost with Avgcost.., Overview and Sample

The standard cost field in eAutomate is a field not used within eAutomate except for cases when your creating a PO for an item and you have no Vendors setup for that item, in which case the standard cost field is used. This can be viewed in Eautomate/Inventory/Item record:


Many of our clients have requested a routine to update this standard cost field with the current average cost for that item so that the average cost is up front and easily viewed. In Eautomate/Inventory/Item Prices you can view the Standard/LastCost and the Average cost:


This alert will run a stored procedure to update the standard cost field for all items assigned to inventory code(s) that have the character string (word) entered in variableW or VariableX above. (no test mode available, so we ask to install first on a test database for your review before running on your live EA database.)

ID99 Sample Output contains Item Number, Item Description, Standard Cost, Average Cost and Inventory Code Description as shown below:


This alert has 2 Variables:
