I work for a company in Australia that uses MYOB EXO version 8.6
They recently purchased MYOB EXO Job Costing.
The company does not want to integrate with stock but merely wants to use job costing to manage their costs.
I have been testing Job Costing in a TEST database.
When a purchase order is created and receipted, we want to code the PO to a general ledger expense account and simultaneously have the transaction cost added to the related job in the Job Costing job register.
But the system won’t let us add the job. Can a customisation or similar be done to achieve this?
We have approached our EXO Business Partner but they have not responded to our requests for Support at all.
It would be great if you could help or advise of any solution.
Solved! Go to Solution.
What you describe is a fundamental bahavior in Job Costing purchases.
However the only thing I think could be the case is you are using GL codes. You need to use Lookup 'stock' codes in order to be able to post to jobs. in the simplest case you could set up a Stockcode of type lookup as the GL Account/usub account code. Thus will work fine and give you features that would would not get by using the GL Code alone.
If that's not the case then , maybe you dont have a default Work in progress stock location nominated.
Even if you are using all Look stock codes. The sytem will require at least one nominal WIP Stock location to be defined. However the system would normally be telling you this on launching Job Costing.
Sounds like a vendor relationship issue if the partner who recently sold the Job Costing Module to you would not respond to emails or requests for support or guidance on implemention. It would be unusual to just switch the module on and not have quoted for configuration assistance and training. Your question is a reasonable one, but would be obvious to any trained EXO partner.
