    Project Accounting information

     

    In versions that are earlier than Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 Service Pack 3

    If Project Accounting is registered and if a value exists in the Project Number field and in the Cost Cat. ID field in the Purchasing Item Detail Entry window, the account information defaults as mentioned in the previous sections. Because a value exists in the Project Number field and in the Cost Cat. ID field in the Purchasing Item Detail Entry window, noninventoried items are not posted to the account that is displayed in the Purchasing Account field for the later receiving transaction.

    In Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 Service Pack 3 and in later versions

    Starting with Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 Service Pack 3, changes were made to the account that defaults in the Purchasing Item Detail Entry window to show a truer picture of what account is used in the receiving process. Consider the following scenarios for noninventoried items:

    • A Cost Plus project type or a Fixed Price project type displays the Work in Process (WIP) account from the source window.
    • A Time and Materials project type that has a When Billed value in the Accounting Method field displays the Work in Process (WIP) account from the source window.
    • A Time and Materials project type that has a When Performed value in the Accounting Method field displays the Cost of Goods Sold account from the source window.
    • A Time and Materials project type that has the budget set up with a Bill Type of Non-billable or No Charge displays the Cost of Goods Sold account from the source window.
    • A Time and Materials project type that has a When Billed value in the Accounting Method field and where the WIP account is sourced to None displays the Cost of Goods Sold account from the source window.



       
    Note To determine the source window, follow these steps:
    1. On the Cards menu, point to Project , and then click Project .
    2. In the Project Maintenance window, click Budget .
    3. Click the cost category from the transaction, and then click the Cost Category expansion window.
    4. In the Budget Detail Entry window, click Accounts to review the source that is selected. If no account exists in the source window, the account defaults from the Posting Account Setup window.
    5. In the Display list, click Project .
