automatic solution for revaluation of maintenance orders with wrong costs?


HI Gurus,

we use internal maintenance orders and post confirmations with transaction IW41.

We implemented a new order type and missed to assign the costing variant, so all confirmations are with 0 costs.

I just updated customizing and also implemented the in SAP note 541786 mentioned Report Z_FILL_COSTING_VARIANTS, which successfully updated all my existing orders of the new order type with the costing variant. Ok, new confirmations are posted with costs now.

But what do to with the existing confirmations? The manual function "Determine Costs" in the service orders does not bring the costs ....

Now I guess, I have 2 possibilities:

1.) Post the values in FI (cost center to order)

2.) Cancel all confirmations and post them anew.

Is there any more automatic solution? And why is the "Determine costs" not working?

Many thanks in advance!
