the costing method in our environment is set to weighted average by date.
my question is the follwing:
if i had an item with many transactions [weighted average was $5] and now it is of zero quantity in my stock, then i wanted to purchase from the same item again, but i got a huge discount on this purchase [cost of $3], so i decided to sell it with $4.5 in order to seal the deal with the customer. logically speaking i should have made a profit of $1.5, but what happens exactly in the system?
does the system still reserve the old weighted average of $5 even though my stock is zero and then make average with $3, thus considering that i did not make any profit, instead i lost?
or does the system consider the there is no cost anymore since there is no quantity left?
and sorry the system is Microsoft AX 2009 not navision
