OE - post cost of goods sold unchecked?

OE - post cost of goods sold unchecked?

Good afternoon,

I was curious about this feature in OE Setup. This is turned off in a new installation of Macola which we have been using since March. We want to turn it on. (Progression 7.7.8) If we do so, is there any way we can get this information into the G/L for the past periods that we have been in operation when this option was not checked, or are we out of luck?

Thanks very much in advance.

RE: OE - post cost of goods sold unchecked?

I don't believe so. This box indicates to Macola if it should create the IMDISFIL_SQL records that are the Cost of Goods Sold, typically this is a debit to a COGS account and a credit to Inventory. I do not believe the records ever get created if this box is not checked.

If it is really import to create these for past periods, you could probably a SQL script to do it, by recursing through the OELINHST_SQL records by invoice date and creating the debit and credit records for each line. If you are using standard cost, and standard cost has not changed during this time, this will be fairly straightforward. If you are using average cost, this will be a real pain in the rear as it will be very tough to capture what the average cost was at any given point in time.

Let me know if you have any questions.
