Update Moving Average Cost with receipt return (Vendor Return / RMA)

There are many, many reasons why you return product to a vendor. Defects, mistake or error on receiving, etc. etc.

Currently, the return uses the MAC for the return value.  Doesn't make sense.  The vendor will either refund what I paid them or an agreed upon price.   I can set the price on the return, but the moving average cost (MAC) isn't updated.  If it's not updated, there should be a variance posted to the GL for the difference, but currently no variance is created.

What really should happen, since the return is item specific, is the value of the inventory (MAC) should be recalculated by the return.  The system used the original receipt to obtain the value/MAC, it should also play out in reverse.  Think about a user mistakenly receiving 1,000,000 pieces versus 100,000.  Best way to fix is reverse the receipt and re-receive.    Acumatica leaves the MAC derived from the mistake.

    Not sure why this isn't in the "Planned" section.  According to Acumatica, this will be shipped in 2018.....

    The possibility to reverse the PO Receipt (using Return by Original Receipt Cost setting on the PO Return) is introduced in 2018R2.

    Poorly imp,lemented.  You are unable to return at the receipt cost if the total inventory value is less than the amount to return.    This must be allowed in order to match the vendor credit.  If the total inventory value is less than the return cost the variance needs to be booked to PPV.
