    the statistic only shows the numbers that have been processed in that step. Most probably the 'missing' material has been released by another costing run, CK24 or dynamic price release. Therefore it is not included in he statistic.
    Please see SAP note 1680489 which explains how to display a better statistic.
    Note 1321242 is also helpful if you have 'Still Open' materials.

    If you have 'Still Open' materials in the costing step then usually this is caused by a cancelled task during parallel processing - so, please check the message log in this case.

      Hi Emad,

      the statistic of CK40N is not incorrect. The 'Still Open' material has not been processed in the release step (it was released by dynamic price release or CK24 posting) - the CK40N statistic only shows what has been processed in the costing run steps.

      You can update the statistic in CK40N by OK-Code CKSU

      Please note that CKSU should only be used if you do not want to further analyze why 'Still Open' materials are shown.

      Best regards,

    At each stage you will get the message log, you can get the list by clicking the error log.

    One more thing:

    If you are not comfortable with cross checking the missing material with the said procedure, please use the following procedure:

    Get the list of materials before cost estimate and after cost estimate from the following report, then compare you will get the missed out material.

    Then do cost estimate for that single material using the T code: CK11N, you will get the detailed message log.....

    • Hi Emad

      You have all 2468 material list at 'analysis' step, take that list and in MM60 fill those materials.

      Check last change column it should be filled with costing date, only for missed material the date will be older one. This is not a universal check because 'last change' column is meant for any changes in the material master, but this time it can work because the latest change is due to calculation of standard cost.
