In order to distribute cost to using locations or departments receiving items purchased from a central business unit, run the Warehouse Issue Report in CSV format. By subtotaling the data as shown in this work instruction, a journal entry can be prepared to allocate the costs to the correct BU and Object for the month or more frequent time period.
The process described below produces a single report in two formats, Adobe (PDF) and Excel (CSV). For this process to work correctly, the user must have previously entered data in the Transaction Explanation field that uniquely describes the various distribution locations as part of the issue process. The report is sorted based upon data in this field.
