Fig. 02 - Report Criteria for the Outlet Variance report
|Select Outlet||All outlets available for selection for the report.
Note: only outlets marked as Perpetual may be selected, as defined in Property>Setup>Location>Outlet.
|Reporting Period||All period inventories that have been opened and closed.|
|Start / End Date||Pre-filled fields based on the open and close dates of the period inventory.|
|On hand Cost||With Original Transactions: generates the report with the original price for the product/recipe during the transaction. Sum of All Transaction Costs.
Note: including zero cost transactions.
With Average Cost: generates the report with an average price if there were several transactions with different prices.
|Recipe Cost||Transaction prices: generates the report with the cost of the recipe during the transaction. ($10)
Recost recipe prices: generates the report with the cost of the recipe before the recost job has run on the server. ($15)
Last Costed Recipe Cost: generates the report with the cost of the recipe after the recost job has run on the server. ($20)
For example, a recipe is transferred from the Storeroom to an outlet and at the moment of transaction the recipe cost was $10.
Then the price of ingredients was changed so that the recipe cost became $15; this was recosted in the system using a job running on the server.
Later on, the price of ingredients was changed to make recipe cost $20 (but the job has not run on the server yet).

Calculation:VARIANCE = INVENTORY UNIT COUNT - SYSTEM ON HAND
On Hand = 20, Count = 10,
10-20 = -10 variance correct
20-10 = +10 variance incorrect
On Hand = -1, Count = 2
2 - (-1) = +3 variance correct
(-1) - 2 = -3 variance incorrect

|Account||The Adaco account number.|
|Account Name||The name of the account.|
