Work in Process Material Return is not costing

We are using Actual Costing with negative inventory = Always. Created a PO for 100 of a component. Created a WO and issued 1000 to the Work Order which made inventory negative go negative. Then accidently issued another 900 to the work order. Ran the cost processes and ALL the transactions were costed. Then reversed 1800 from the Work Order back into stores. Stores inventory quantity now = 0. Ran the cost processes and the Work in Process Material Return transaction does not cost.

I expected the return from the Work Order to Inventory to cost just as the issue to Work Order from Inventory transaction was costed. The transactions offset each other. Inventory is now at 0, but the transaction will not cost.


Howdy, Stranger!
