Changing Valuation Class of a Material

Hi sap Memebers,

I want to change the valuation class of a material. There is currently no stock for that material but there is one purchase order for which the Goods have been received and invoice has also been posted. The delivery completed check has also been marked for that PO in the item details on the delivery tab page. PO status in the header shows " still to be delivered quantity 0 ". when i attempted to save the material master record after with a changed valuation class it showed me an error and the same po number in that error that the PO exists for the material.

What should i need to further check and what to do in order to change the valuation class.

Regards,

Ahsan Anwar

    Hi,

    It is not advisable to change the valuation class for a material.

    If there are no entries for that material, we can change the valuation class

    Reasons:

    Posting happen with the existing valuation class.

    That is the reason you are getting the error message.as already one PO exists.

    Solution:

    Change the message from error to warning or information message and save.

    • Hi,

      Transaction for changing the Message from Error to Warning is OMT4

      ( MM327 from E to W)

      After changing perform the cost estimate.

      Before changing keep in mind the best practice as mentioned below:

      To change material valuation class, the materials shouldn’t have

      • Valuated stock in current or previous period.
      • Open purchase orders or delivery schedule lines.
      • Production order for which goods movement has already taken place.

      If any of the above conditions fail, then follow the procedure mentioned.

      1. If valuated stocks already exist, you can change the valuation class only as follows:

      • Post the stocks of the material to an interim account.
      • Change the valuation class in the material master record.
      • Post the stocks of the material back to their original account.


      2. If open purchase orders already exist, you can only change the valuation class if you first flag the corresponding purchase order items for deletion.


      3. If production orders exist for which a goods movement has already taken place, you can only change the valuation class if you first set the status of the production orders to Deleted.

    Hi,

    If the error message is pertaining to invoice then either you have reverse the invoice or you have to change the error message to warning.

    Then you have to delete all the PO line items associated with then concern material.

    For that make sure compliance of the following points

    Only after that system will allow you to change Valuation class.

    Once you complete the Val.Class change activity don't forget to un-delete the PO line item.
