Deviation cannot be calculated as the unit cost price is zero

Hi,

Prior to closing inventory for a period I ran a report to check cost prices for receipts (Inventory Management > Periodic > Closing and adjustment > Close Period > Check cost prices), I got error message as ‘Deviation cannot be calculated as the unit cost price is zero.’

My questions are:

  1. What is the root cause of the error and
  2. Can I go ahead to close the inventoy

Hi, am facing the same issue using AX 2012 CU7, any solution? Regards

Hi,

i guess you are using FIFO and LIFO as your costing method group, you might be using anything but a standard cost.

in this case you don’t have a really cost for the report to compare to it.

i guess things will be more messy if you didn’t enter any standard cost in the item card.

therefore you will see this error.

what you can do is to change Inventory Management > Periodic > Closing and adjustment > Close Period > Check cost prices > basic const price from item cost price to item or median , median, then you will see some value, but i would say that it doesn’t mean anything.

Regards

Hi,

Thanks for your suggestion. It was an old issue and I don’t really remember the solution which was proposed.

Anyway, thank you once again. Your post might help someone else.
