About Updating Committed Units in Job Cost

If a material's standard unit of measure equals the Job Cost U/M or can be converted to it (using the conversion factors in HQ Material Units of Measure), Total and Remaining Committed Units and Costs will be updated to the Cost by Period table (JCCP) each time you post a Material Order Entry, Confirmation, or Close batch.

If the Update Committed Cost detail to JC box is checked in IN Company Parameters, entries are also generated in the Cost Detail table (JCCD). These detail entries are made at the material order item level, and are created whenever the Committed Units or Costs on a material order are modified.

If the units of measure do not match, or cannot be converted, then units and costs are not updated.
