Paul,
I did a negative RP to put the item back on the PO and I did this for 2 reasons:
1. I thought that this would change the average cost in the warehouse to the 
original average cost
2. I wanted to change the purchase price on the PO to the correct value

But after I performed the negative RP, the above didn't take place. Instead the 
average cost changed to a higher cost, but the item was put back on the PO.

In a nut shell, the original avg cost was: $20
After RP: avg cost: $1320
After negative RP: avg cost: $4300!!!!!!!!

I did my negative RP on the RP screen and made sure I had a neagtive qty! 
What's happening? Let me know if you need more info, I can send you a 
spreadsheet with the transactions.
