Costing run not updating table keko but updating cost

Dear Experts,

Need your expertise on this issue . We have executed costing run using CK40n for the month of september on 1st oct 2015 . Costing done successfully for all the materials and marking too went good. But while releasing, cost estimates are released for almost all the materials except few materials. To my surprise, when i check the KEKO table , for not released materials it is showing KA status with released cost estimate column left blank instead of VO status atleast as they are already marked . I am aware of the fact , if status is FR, eventually the released cost estimate column gets updated. Also i checked MM03 , there it is updating Standard cost for all these materials. I did testing for the same materials and experienced the same in QA environment too. We are using mixed costing and for some materials have mixed ratio 0:0.Kindly clarify whether costing run considers materials with mixed ratio 0 : 0 or not ? Also materials with mixed ratio other than 0:0 showing released cost estimate column not updated but updating standard cost in material master.How come this happens , with out updating table , how it is updating standard cost ? Guide me in the correct path whether i am looking in the correct table or else what needs to be done to fix this issue? Should i write this to Abap or what?

    Hi Hemanthkumar,

    when doing mixed costing with n procurement alternatives you will get:

    1 cost estimate representing the mixing of the procurement alternative costs (KEKO-MKALK = 'X')

    n cost estimates below representing the procurement alternatives (KEKO-BALTKZ = 'X')

    Only exception: there is only a single procurement alternative - in this case you will only have a single cost estimate (as there is no cost estimate required for mixing costs).

    In marking and release step only the cost estimate that represents the mixing of costs (KEKO-MKALK = 'X') will change its status to VO and FR. The cost estimates representing the procurement alternatives will stay KA.

    (The only exception is mixed costing for split valuated materials.)
