How to have both standard cost and actual cost in one cost org

Accepted answer
in Costing 2 comments


I want to manufacture an item which has sub components. For example a greeting card.

Paper and ink would be the material used which would have the standard cost.

Printing machine would be costed on an hourly basis and will be charged on actuals(on how long it is used).

The greeting card should combine all the cost i.e. that is cost of paper, ink and the printing machine( based on the usage).

I tried creating two cost books the primary with ledger (actual cost) and the secondary (ledger less) (Standard cost).

Ink and paper was costed in the secondary cost book. But on doing a misc receipt and enabling the use current item cost feature the item cost is not being fetched in the primary cost book.

Howdy, Stranger!
