RE: Inventory Worksheet – Making a change to one Item

Just wondering, and it’s not exactly clear on Netsuite help, but what actually happens when I make a change to one item on a previous Inventory Worksheet? Will only that item get updated or will it affect the rest of the items as well?

Yes only that item will get updated, use the same parameters (begin/end of day). …. Be aware the prebuilt Netsuite reports do not update immediately can take an hr to update (creates confusion sometimes)…… save-searches will update immediately

As to Netsuite reports not updating immediately that’s just¬† not true stop spreading lies. Everything pulls from the same database. Wasted my time I seen this and had to ask netsuite support if it really as you say. Reports and Saved Searches get their information in real time.

While the reports do pull information in real time, the full affect of the changes are not immediate.

The costing engines are normally set to run on a schedule. This means that SOME reports will go to pull information “in real time” but the “real time” data will not be correct, because certain processes have yet to run.

As an administrator and consultant I have done my fair share of inventory revaluations in NetSuite, and the changes can take time to update the data base. It is not immediate. This is especially true if you are back dating a transaction.

After entering a backdated inventory or cost impacting transaction, NetSuite will have to go recalculate the GL impact of all the transactions dated after the one you entered. This is part of the job that costing engines play.

Some people have their costing engines set to run more frequently. Most have them set to run only on off hours/days. This is because the engines can affect system performance and result in large volume of GL changes.


PS. I know this comment is VERY late – but I wanted anyone who visits this question to have correct information.
