Variance in pre-tax total and received cost in PO application

Question & Answer


Question

Why is there a variance in Pre-tax Total and Received Cost in the Purchase Orders application?

Cause

This is working as designed.

Answer

The Received Cost ( PO.RECEIVEDTOTALCOST) is the total value of the materials or services that have been received.

The Pre-tax Total (PO.PRETAXTOTAL) is the total cost for the goods on the PO, excluding taxes.

When you receive ordered items or services, you are able to change the quantity that you receive and you are able to receive less or more than the quantity on the Purchase Order.

You will be given a warning if you are receiving more than the quantity on the Purchase Order and you will need to click OK, but Maximo will let you do it.

This is how the Received Cost can be greater (or less than) than the Pretax Total of the Purchase Order.
