    Hi All,

    I am facing the posting problem on Material Receipt & Shipment window.

    As we know that compiere gives the facility to modify the prices of products on  Purchase order & Sales order but after modifying the prices on Purchase order  & Sales order, then we create the Material Receipt/Shipment the posting happens on the price given on the master but not on the price that we give on the Purchase order/Sales order.

    But on the Vendor Invoice/Customer Invoice, posting is as per the price given on the Purchase Order/Sales Order.

    Anyone  who knows the solutions, kindly tell me why this is happening what to do make the posting proper.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Surya Bhushan

      Actually it's something about the product cost, which means the posting price of the material receipt is the product cost price
      defined in the "Product Cost" window.

      what is poasted in material movements is the Cost (depending upon the costing method used).  If it posted the costs as what you sell it for you would never have a profit!

        Just to expand on what Kathy mentioned, it depends on your costing method on the Accounting Schema.

        If set to "Standard Costing" (which it sounds like it is from your description) the MR/MS posting picks up the standard cost in the Product Cost window. It doesn't use the costs on SO line or PO line, as per the definition of standard costing. 
        - When matching the MR to the PO then a "purchase price variance" will be produced.
        - When matching the PI to the MR then a "invoice price variance" will be produced.

        Costing can be a tricky subject to understand.
