Link b/w Valuation Type and Batch Number Issue

Hi,

Is there link between Valuation Type and Batch Number as per Standard SAP.

Actually, we have a requirement in STO that Valuation Type in Delivery tab of STO and Batch Number in Delivery Order should be same.

If any difference, system must thru an error message for the same.

Please guide..

    What is the business logic for this requirement.

    Batch is used to differentiate one material for various reason..

    If your batch level is client level or material level, then you can use only one batch number for one material.

    Valuation type is to valuation one material for different types.

    Such as one material has status FRESH, LOOSE, REJECTION and all has a different price and valuation

    In that purpose you can use valuation type.

    Although a batch record is created in background for each valuation type.

    you can see the batch in MCHA table.

    Hi,

    If the material is both valuated and with valuation type, you can find the link in MCHA table. MCHA contains both batch and valuation type as shown below:

    Do you have a 1 to 1 correspondence between your batch number and valuation type. Normally a few valuation types are defined and for every receipt ( generally, by and large ) a new batch number is assigned. If the requirement is to have saparate number ranges for different valuation type you may have to explore the exits which can be accessed thru SPRO > LG > batch > batch numbering .

    Hi Anil,

    Please clear the requirement and where you want check the validations, based on that we can check the table either MCHB or MBEW oe EKPO also.

    If a material is extended the valuation you need to check the MBEW table.

    There is actually an error message, but later, during goods receipt.

    Especially with split valuation set to batch individual valuation you seldom know the batch and hence the valuation type when you create the STO, it may not even be produced when you create the STO. OSS note has a solution as the subject already explains:1677707 - Determine val. type for stock transport order at time of GI


    However, I suggest to search yourself for OSS notes, e.g. using these words:

    valuation type delivery batch stock order

    as there are many that explain the SAP design
