KE27 - Periodic Valuation

Hi experts,

I was reading the above topic in wiki and there's a couple of points which I would appreciate enlightenment.

Quoting verbatim here...

"The system uses the same characteristic values as in the original line item (NO DERIVATION OF CHARACTERISTIC VALUES). Hence derivation is not called. The purpose of KE27 is only to update the value fields. Values and quantities that were transferred from the sales order or billing document in Sales and Distribution (SD) remain unchanged. Other value fields which are filled using conditions from CO-PA or a material cost estimate are reset."

The last statement "Other value fields which are filled using conditions from CO-PA or a material cost estimate are reset." - What does this mean?

Second quote...

"Exception:In case you select the option all 'value fields modifiable' the system will not care if a value field is assigned at some interface. This means that the value field will be cleared ( that is before the valuation module is called ) whenever the field is checked on the value field selection screen. Also, the system will perform a delta calculation for this value field."

Does this mean that the original valuation at standard cost will be cleared and replaced with the actual cost from Material Ledger if I switch on the All Value fields modifiable option?

My requirement is that I want to be able to see COGS at standard and actual (from ML) in COPA. Also would like to know if there's an option to select posting only delta (difference been actual and standard) or posting the entire actual COGS during periodic valuation. The second is more on the extraction of data to BW.

Thank you.

    The Value field which is used for KE27 it should be different from billing. You have to make different value fields for this valuation or else you may get error while kE27.

    When you run KE27 it will calculate the new values and then post the delta so that original + delta = new values.

    For example standard cost was 100 USD when you posted the billing document. After ML run the value is 110 USD. So a delta of 10 USD would be posted.

    However value fields which have been filled via any interface (SD,FI MM) via say KE4I, KEI3 etc would not be considered during KE27 unless you check 'all value fields modifiable'.

    For example in the above example if the standard cost of 100 USD was filled via SD condition VPRS in value field ERLOS. If in KE27 you want the delta of 10 USD to be filled in ERLOS you need to flag 'all value fields modifiable'. Else you need to fill another value field (not filled from anywhere else) with 110 USD and then in your reporting deal with the 10 USD delta.
