Correcting or deleting landed costs

If a landed cost was put in incorrectly, it can be deleted as long as no accounting entries have been made.

In other words, a landed cost can be deleted as long as no items relating to the landed cost have been received into stock on the purchase order.

If the items have been received but haven't yet been shipped on a sale, it is possible to unallocate the items from any sales orders, unreceive the items on the purchase order, delete the landed cost, reallocate the correct landed cost (if appropriate) and then re-receive the items into stock.

The easiest way to un-receive all items on a purchase order is to delete the goods-in note(s) via the inventory detail report.
