All historical inventory data for items that uses a costing method are brought into the scope for the cost adjustment after you upgrade Microsoft Dynamics NAV, [MS]

This article applies to Microsoft Dynamics NAV for all countries and all language locales.


After you upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0 with Service Pack 1 (SP1) or Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 SP1 from an earlier version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, if you have an item that uses any costing method, all transactions for that item are brought into scope for the cost adjustment. When you run the "Adjust Cost - Item Entries" batch job, an additional entry is created for the item. You notice that the historical data that was adjusted for the item in an earlier version is brought into the scope of the cost adjustment after upgrade. This behavior is incorrect.

This problem also occurs after you upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009.This problem also occurs after you upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009.
