Why does the Standard Cost Field update with a value when your using Average Costing

I have an item which is Average Costed but I wonder why despite this the Standard Cost field also gets updated ???.

Should the standard cost and unit cost be the same, in my case they are not the same should I be worried is there something I need to run to make them the same like Adjust Item Costs.

Hi Andrew,

You no need to worry,!!
Even if you are using Average costing or FIFO the standard cost field will be updated with the cost value. In normal cases standard cost and unit cost value are same only.
