Changing incorrect cost.

So we had a clerical entry error. Someone accidentally added a leading 5 digit to an item's cost. The item sold before this was caught, so there was a huge negative profit margin. We will fix this on the back-end, so that's not the issue.

What I'm wondering is how/why the manual cost correction doesn't appear in the inventory change logs. I'll attach a few screen shots. Showing the sale, showing the current cost that's correct, as well as the inventory change logs showing no manual cost correction.

It's imperative for a POS/inventory system to have some sort of an audit trail so that we don't have potential loss. Any idea why this manual cost correction is essentially invisible from an audit perspective?
