Cost Transfer in Sage X3

By | November 22, 2013

Sage X3 has come up with the interesting feature of Product Cost Transfer. The standard Cost Transfer (COPYCOUT) function under the costing module can be used to transfer the product cost.

Cost Transfer: Costing > Miscellaneous Processes > Cost Transfer (COPYCOUT).

Below is the standard screen of cost transfer:


  • This function is used to transfer the cost of the product from one site to another.
  • The header section contains the filter criteria of product either you can transfer the cost of all products, on selection basis or for specific product.
  • The coefficient specifies the coefficient of transferring the cost.
  • As we can see in the above Cost transfer screen there are two separate block to enter the Source and destination detail. In the source block specify the reference site details and in the Destination block specify the site detail to which you need to transfer the cost.

The standard cost transfer screen has the options of transferring the cost type Standard, Revised, Budget and Simulate.

What if you want transfer the average Cost?

As we know that the average cost of product is set/changed automatically when the receipt against that product is created. However in the standard Cost Transfer screen there is no option of transferring the average cost to any other cost type.

We have customized this functionality and we have added the options of transferring the average cost as well. We created the new function “Enhanced Cost Transfer” which is the replica of standard one. We have also added the some more product filter criteria.

Please refer to the below screen shot of newly created function “Enhanced Cost Transfer” in which we have added the option of average cost transfer.


Hope this helps!
