Costs Posted to Production Order After Variance Settlement

The current scenario:

ECC System. Actual Costing/Material Ledger with Revaluation of Consumption is active.

A production order that was completed (DLV) in June. The production order was settled, variances were calculated, and Material Ledger distributed those variances to inventory/consumption accounts.

Now in July, additional hours were incurred for the same production order that was delivered in June. If we were to post additional labor cost to the production order, the system will not let us settle because Material Ledger restricts this (Material ledger changes the price control for June vs July, leading to error M7087 if we try to re-settle).

We need July's labor costs to somehow be included in the material actual costs, so that material ledger distributes the variances correctly. We cannot reverse and resettle the production order, as this is a commonly occurring process and June month-end is already complete.

Is there a way to settle July's additional costs to the material if the production order was already settled in June? Please consider Material Ledger Actual Costing is active, thus we will run into error M7087 if we try to settle again in July.
