MRKO - Pipeline Material

Dear All,

We are doing consumption (261 movement) of Natural Gas in process order.

We are mantaining info record thru me11. We are also changing rate or Natural Gas with validity perio

During month end we are receiving bill from vendor and settle thru MRKO.

In some cases it might be possible that we forgot to change latest rate in info record.

During MRKO we come to know that billing rate is diff. than rate maintained in info record. We are chaning rate with effect date.

But in MRKO it consider rate which was during consumption of material.

Due to this we are getting diff. between actual bill and document posted in SAP.

Is it possible that, during MRKO system again consider rate from info record ?

Thanks and Regards,

    you have to cancel the consumptions while info record is maintained with old rates, then you need to do another MRKO, this should equalize the first.

    then you change the rate in the info record and repost your consumption.

    There is no subsequent adjustment for MRKO.

    you could as well get differences because of exchange rate changes if your price is in foreign currency. Even here SAP has no technical solution as you could read in Note 487162 - MRKO: Manual clearing of consignment liabilities account

    Hi Nirav,

    When you post a withdrawal from consignment to your own stock, the
    system reads the consignment inforecord and values it according
    to the net price in the inforecord.
    This information is stored in table RKWA. The corresponding field
    is WRBTR.

    And the invoice documented created by MRKO will use the currency that
    was active in the info record when the material document was posted.
    Changes in the info record after the document posting (and before
    MRKO) have no impact.

    It mean MRKO will refer RKWA, and RKWA is determined in your Goods Issue
    posting. So if in your goods issue posting date, the currency has been
    written to RKWA, then even you change the currency in the consignment
    info record, it will not influnce the MRKO posting because MRKO will
    always refer RKWA table entry.

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to change the price information in

    table RKWA. Such a change would lead to an inconsistency on the G/L

    account, that would not be balanced after MRKO posting.

    You would have to reverse the consignment GI material documents

    then run MRKO for reversals to create an FI credit memo for them,

    then clear the two FI documents against each other, then re-post

    the consignment issues, then run MRKO again to finally pay them.

    Refer to note 356130 on how to reverse MRKO settlements.

    I hop this information helps,
