Moving Average Price in MM

Hi,

When there is enough stock and any exchange rates differences during IR/GR on freight clearing, it will be posted to stock account and this cause a change in moving average price on the material. Is there any way to post the exchange rates difference to a exchange rate differences GL account?

    I guess it depends on how the material is managed, If it is managed with a moving average price then it will be postd to the stock account and if it is managed with a standard price then the variance can be posted to an Exc.rate diff account.

    Warm Regards

    Exchange Rate Differences Materials Management(AVR) (KDG)

    When you carry out a revaluation of single-level consumption in the material ledger for an alternative valuation run, the exchange rate difference accounts of the materials are credited with the exchange rate differences that are to be assigned to the consumption.

    Exchange rate differences in the case of open items (KDM)

    Exchange rate differences in the case of open items arise when an invoice relating to a purchase order is posted with a different exchange rate to that of the goods receipt and the material cannot be debited or credited due to standard price control or stock undercoverage/shortage.

    Differences due to exchange rate rounding, Materials Management (KDR)

    An exchange rate rounding difference can arise in the case of an invoice made out in a foreign currency. If a difference arises when the posting lines are translated into local currency (as a result of rounding), the system automatically generates a posting line for this rounding difference.

    Exchange Rate Differences from Lower Levels (KDV)

    In multi-level periodic settlement in the material ledger, some of the exchange rate differences that have been posted during the period in respect of the raw materials, semifinished products and cost centers performing the activity used in the manufacture of a semifinished or finished product are debited or credited to that semifinished or finished product.

    Consignment liabilities (KON)

    Consignment liabilities arise in the case of withdrawals from consignment stock or from a pipeline or when consignment stock is transferred to own stock.

    Depending on the settings for the posting rules for the transaction/event key KON, it is possible to work with or without account modification. If you work with account modification, the following modifications are available in the standard system:

    None for consignment liabilities

    Hope this help.

    Hi,

    So there is no way we can direct exchange rate differences to another GL account for MAP material?

    I had setup different GL account in KDM, KDR, KDV and KON but the posting just post back to the stock account, is it a limitation in SAP for moving average price materials?

    Is there a way to have a report on this difference on the moving average price due to price or exchange rates differences?

    Hi,

    Is there any report that show how the moving average price changes whenever there is an additional purchase.

    Details like :

    1. Date of the inventory movement

    2. Vendor code and name

    3. Vendor invoice no.

    4. Material code, qty and unit price

    5. Change in the moving average price

    Figure should tally to the one in MC.9?

    Hi there, I am implementing in 6.0 and I have this scenario, a KDM account is asked to be populated for exchange rate diff for a material with Moving Average Price? ML is active. Is this correct? I assumed that exchange rate diff would be sent to Stock Account because this uses a moving price control. Why the system is asking to have an account in KDM?

    Thanks in advance,

    Lorena
