NEW!

You set up a catalog of standard cost types, such as labor, materials, and subcontracts, to use as templates for creating new cost types.

Note: Construction companies record expenses using the work breakdown structure (WBS). In the industry, the WBS is traditionally defined as job/cost code/category. Sage Intacct uses project/task/cost type to reflect this structure.


List Standard Cost Types

query

List the record number and standard cost type ID for each cost type (with no filtering):

<query>
    <object>STANDARDCOSTTYPE</object>
    <select>
        <field>STANDARDCOSTTYPEID</field>
        <field>RECORDNO</field>
    </select>
</query>

Parameters

Name Required Type Description
object Required string Use STANDARDCOSTTYPE
select Required sequence One or more field names and an optional aggregate function such as count or sum. Returning all fields is not supported.
filter Optional object Query filter expression that adheres to the query schema. The expression can check the value of a single field using operators such as equalto/like/etc. or multiple fields using and/or expressions, optionally nested. Encode any illegal XML characters and escape single quotes with backslashes. Joins are not supported.
orderby Optional object Provide an order element with a field name and choose an ascending or descending sort order, for example:
<order>
        <field>RECORDNO</field>
        <descending/>
</order>
options Optional object Set the caseinsensitive element to true for a case-insensitive query:
<caseinsensitive>true</caseinsensitive>
pagesize Optional integer Custom page size between 1 and 2000 items (Default: 100)
offset Optional integer Point at which to start indexing into records (Default: 0)
docparid Optional string Document type, such as Sales Order, Purchase Order, or Inventory Transfer

<readByQuery>
    <object>STANDARDCOSTTYPE</object>
    <fields>*</fields>
    <query></query>
    <pagesize>100</pagesize>
</readByQuery>

Parameters

Name Required Type Description
object Required string Use STANDARDCOSTTYPE
fields Optional string Comma-separated list of fields on the object to list. For best performance and predictability, limit the number of fields. To return all fields, omit the element or provide * for the value.
query Required string SQL-like query based on fields on the object. Illegal XML characters must be properly encoded. The following SQL operators are supported: <, >, >=, <=, =, like, not like, in, not in. When doing NULL comparisons: IS NOT NULL, IS NULL. Multiple fields may be matched using the AND and OR operators. Joins are not supported. Single quotes in any operands must be escaped with a backslash - For example, the value Erik's Deli would become Erik\'s Deli.
pagesize Optional integer Custom page size between 1 and 1000 items (Default: 100)
