High Standard Cost Revaluation Amount


In GP Manufacturing 10.0, what are some things that typically cause the 
Standard Cost Revaluation account to be so large in one month and not so 
large in the other months?

First of all, running it each month is not normal.  Most SC firms revalue 
one, two, or four times a year.  However.....

Look for manufacturing costs variances by using the Order Variance window 
under Inquiry->Manufacturin->MOs->Order Variance.  Look for material 
variances here as the rollup will pull actual material costs at the proposed 
rate of consumption but only proposed labor and overhead costs.

Make sure no one is changing the Labor Code rates or overhead rates.

Look for changes to the BOMs and/or routers for material quantities, new 
materials, production timings, etc.

And, of course, look for cost changes to the purchased items.  If these 
items are not Periodic items, each purchase will change their value.  Look 
for spot buys (small quantities with rush charges) that will temporarily 
inflate the cost of the item.

There are many other things but these are the top 4.  For more places to 
look, check out the reasons for variances listed in our Manufacturing Cost 
Accounting for Dynamics GP manual.

Budget Amounts on reports disagree with amounts set in budget
I have Money 2003 and am trying to use budgetting for the first time. First, I tried autobudget but didn't like all the derived budget amounts. Some looked really out of wack but I didn't try tracing them all to the source transactions. Then I manually created a budget. It spans all of 2004. I then viewed the monthly report for January and noticed that the budgeted amount for income was $1,800 greater than what I had entered for the monthly income. My income budgetting is very simple in that I only enter the net income amounts as in $xxxx per month. I then viewed the annual budget...

How does item cost get updated with drop-ship POs?
When you create a drop-ship PO, you (obviously) can't do a receipt transaction since the product is never received - it was shipped straight to the customer.

Find row and add variable amount to it
I want to choose a selection from a drop-down list, then type in an amount in a nearby cell, and I want it to find the matching row of the item I chose from the drop-down list and enter that amount into that row (and add it to any amount that is already there, because that cell will already have a formula in it, and I want to add to that formula). For ex., let's say Column A has labels. A1, A3 and A5 are labelled "Rafter." A2, A4 and A6 are labelled "Amount." A9:A13 are labelled "5001":"5005", respectively. These represent the various names/t...

Marking a particular message "high importance"

The problem with this is that this seems to confer this setting on all mail.

Use of UML in Visio 2003 standard edition

High availability.
Hi. We are using an Ex2003 Enterprise edition running without any clustering. We would like to increase our potential up-time. Thus we would like to reduce the downtime in the event of a database failure or configuration error. That is why we are not using the clustering facility (all though I now know that there is a possibility to use "Majority node set server clusters" which would minimize the problems if the server experiences a database-error). Do you guys have any recommendations on where to seek inspiration concerning increased uptime. I am still wondering if anyone h...

high cpu usage

Printing too high
I have Publisher 2003 and have just producaed a 2-page document. Every time I print it, the pinting goes to the very top of both pages, leaving a large area of white at the bottom instead of being centered. I have checked out the printer, and it is OK. It prints Word docs and other Publisher docs OK. It just seems to be a problem with this specific document, but I can't work out why. Might be time to check for an updated printer driver.

Information Store is high even after cleanout
I had my Exchange 5.5 users clean out their email accounts since I was nearing the 16GB limit. They removed approximately 2.6GB of mail.

Office:mac standard on 800x600 iBook SE monitor
I've just purchased Office 2004 standard for Mac upgrade version (I have Office 98). In the fine print of the system requirements it says I need an 1024x768 or greater monitor. As I was hoping to install it on my iBook SE with an 800x600 monitor, millions of colours, I'm reluctant to open the box before I find our whether it will work. The irony is that every other version of Office:mac including the forthcoming Office:mac Pro seems to work on 800x600 monitors with as low as thousands of colours ( see http://www.microsoft.com/mac/howtobuy.aspx?pid=sysreq ).

Realtek eth card high CPU usage
Hi, My problem is: After installing the driver for Realtek RTL8169/8110 ethernet card, the CPU Usage is up to 40-50%. However, there is no high process usage other than idle.

This one showed that "Hardware Interrupts" are responsible for 50-70% CPU usage. Then, I've used Kernrate to investigate further. It showed that two of the modules are responsible for a lot of hard...
