Purchase order - consumption account

Hi,

My customer is upgrading their AX4 to Ax2012R3.

In Ax4 Inventory posting profile, there is “Consumption” under the purchase order tab.

May i know in Ax2012R3, the Consumption is map to which account type? Or Ax does not use it any more?

Kindly advice. Thanks.

regards,

tan

If possible you can have a developer to look into the upgrade scripts to understand the mapping.

Depending on what type of item you are setting up for posting (Item type, service type, stocked, etc.), there are 2 possible posting types that would be similar to the Consumption posting from AX4. These are Purchase expenditure for product and Purchase expenditure for expense.

Purchase expenditure for product is used when the inventory item (Released product) is in an Item model group that is marked as stocked. It is used for both item type and service type products.

Purchase expenditure for expense is used when the inventory item is in an Item model group that is NOT marked as stocked. It is also used for the new Procurement categories.
