cost price to standard price updation
By Babuplus at 12 Jul 2011 - 17:02

Can you please confirm my understanding about Cost price/ std price etc

1.  When ever there is a receipt in the raw material store, inventory price is calculated as per the setting WA method and stored in the receipt table.  This average price is not used  any where except for updating to the standard price table. If this is correct what value will be added to raw mat inventory.

2. upon running standard price update,  the price in the receipt table is copied to standard price table only if there is stock for an item, otherwise old std price will be retained. Now all the inventory in all the warehouses (raw mat, wip, fini goods)  are revalued as per the new std rate.

3. issues from the  raw material store to production is valued  at the price in the std price table always

4. receipt from the production to warehouse is valued actual cost and on WA basis, the rate will be stored only in the receipt table. but the inventory will be taken as per the std price table (diff goes to the prod result)  upon running price update, the act cost price in the receipt table is copied to std rate  

5. issues from finished goods warehouse to sales is valued at std price table and moved to cogs. (always)

Is my understanding correct, if not,  can you please explain me the process updating  cost price to std price step by step explaining what happens during the process.

also pl let me know where standard price table is used and where actual cost prices are used

Creating a PDF INVOICE to disk with Invoice number in the file name for archiving purposes.
By genehunter at 14 Jul 2009 - 16:32

I have been working on a way to archive invoices and to automatically label the file name with the invoice number. This is the code I have so far. It uses Ghost script pdf converter and it seems to work. If you have questions send me an email at


This is the print driver. the code near the middle (findstr) is what finds the string with the INVOICE number and labels the pdf file. 


gswin32c -q -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sPAPERSIZE=a4 -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOutputFile=e:\baan\tmp\archive_pdf.pdf e:\baan\tmp\archive_pdf.txt

Creating Oracle roles manually
By Markus Schmitz at 18 Apr 2008 - 16:47

You can create all needed users/roles manually, but you have to keep the same passwords, because you have only one ora_users file for all databases.


Here we go:


1) You need to create the schema owner. In Unix this is normally baan and in NT often baandb:

create user baan identified by xyz;
grant ressource to baan;
grant connect to baan;


2) You need to create the role which all Baan users belong to. In Unix, this is r_baan:

create role r_baan;


3) You need to create the actual Oracle users for the Baan users, see ora_users file:

create user heinz identified by XYZ;
grant connect to heinz;
grant ressource to heinz;
grant r_baan to heinz;

Customer / Supplier financial analysis in pivot table
By Hitesh Shah at 7 Feb 2009 - 13:17

Now it is becoming increasingly clear that users need liveliness and interactivity on static data from OLTP. This is possible through multi-dimensional modeling available in free-form pivot table or cube structures. As there are not many cube applications and not many established routines to populate cubes incrementally periodically automatically, report-directly-in-excel is becoming vogue.  Though most summarized multi-dimensional modeling cab be done easily with old MS Excel 2003, with excellent enhancement in MS Excel 2007, scalability and liveliness has increased manifold in pivoting (multi-dimensional modeling using pivot table).

All that one need is accurate, reliable and relevant figures side-by-side in CSV format for all dimensions / measures to follow report-directly-in-excel-with-data-dict-advantages strategy. For example, here is a baan report which gives all important dimensions/measures related to customer financial behavior.


Here is the list of dimensions:
