#### Inventory - Cost in decimal places

```Hi,

Altough we are using the currency in two decimal places. It does
happen that certain inventory items, when purchased have a value that
can go up to three decimal places.

As the system only shows 2 decimal places for the cost, what happens
to the third decimal place value. I hope the system just doesn't
discard it away, or does it calculate it in the background???

Any ideas on what happens to this third decimal place.

for example
unit cost = .39
total quantity = 7.5
Total cost should be = 2.925

but the system shows = 2.93

what happens with this .005 cost.

```Sajid,
You will lose the rounded portion (\$.005) and at present there is no
automatic mechanism to capture this cost and adjust the GL, sorry.

Cost basis in different currencies
I am using Money 2004 Deluxe and I am using Danish Krone (DKK) as my base currenc In my investment portfolio I have investments in varios currencies (DKK, USD, EURO, etc.). For all investments in currencies other than DKK I have a problem with the calculation of the cost basis on thereby also the gain. For instance an investment shown in its original currency such as USD with a historical cost of USD 100 will now show a cost basis of USD 103. I suspect it has something to do with exchange rate conversion back and forth with my base currency (DKK) when I update Money(?). However the historical...

Adding up time in decimal value
Hi I'm trying to add up some cells containing the formula =(X1*0.64/60) The idea is that it rounds up to the nearest decimal point, fo example... 100 X 0.64 = 64, but I want it to show 1.1 (Like 1 hour and point 1 o an hour) This I can do, but the problem comes when adding up the cell containing the 1.1. For example 15 cells containing 1.1 add up to only 16 but I wan them to add up to 16.5. (15 X 1.1 instead of 15 X 64/60) Is there anybody out there who can help? -- awo ----------------------------------------------------------------------- awol's Profile: http://www.excelforum...

decimal value leading zero's
Hi Group How do I get excel to stop adding a leading zero to a value like .567? I hate looking at 0.567!!! It just ruins the visual effect!!! These are calculated values formatted to 3 decimal places. I have a stupid work around in which I use a helper cell with the formula =TEXT(A1,".000"). I also tried things like =LEFT(A1,4) but this doesn't work if the calculated value is say 0.600 and the the added zero's are from formatting. This will return .6 . Isn't there a custom number format that could be used thus eliminating any work around? I've searched the...

Missing InterStore Inventory Transfers
Hi, We're running RMS HQ 2.0 with 8 store locations, including a warehouse. We're having trouble with an interstore inventory transfer from the warehouse to one of the stores in that the transfers are suddenly refusing to appear.The rest of the stores receive their transfers fine- there may be a delay of up to a day, but eventually they show up. I see from previous post thats this was common for older versions of RMS but surprised its still an issue for 2.0. I also see that some forum contributers had scripts for forcing these through but I'm a little bit confused by the c...

So I go into the SIMC screen and enter either a future-dated or backdated pending material cost for CORDG (a component of 100XLG). But that change doesn't show in the Std Cost Maintenance screen for either CORDG or 100XLG. It doesn't show in teh Stand Cost Changes screen either. Neitehr rollup nor revalue in that screen picks up the SIMC value. What am I missing? Generall...

Landed cost #6
Is it possible to use landed cost when we receive partial reciepts of several POs in one shipment? Yes. It is useful to think of landed costs as a way of applying costs to a shipment or container of goods. The shipment may consist of goods sent for several purchase orders. The first thing you do is to mark off which goods have arrived. Landed costs just records those additional costs that occur when the goods pass through customs and are shipped to your office.

Place actual selection name in table instead of ID #?
I have a CBO that places the companies ID in my table instead of the actual companys name. I know this is how it is suppose to work but I need it to place the actual name that the user selects into the table. How is this done I know of a way? In that case you have to change the field in the designated table because initally you would store a number and now you want to store text. So change the field to text and then change the bound column of the CBO to 2 (which is probably the field which shows the name). This way you can still use the combo but it will store the name in the table (as...
