Hi,

As it is a subcontract PO you need to enter component details by clicking 'Components' radio button under material data tab. Check and revert if you face any other issue.

The most important screenshot is missing: a screenshot from MSC3N or from MCHA table where we see the existing batch and its valuation type

As per your request. These are spare parts(ERSA) and are not really "Batch" managed. We are not using serial numbers.

As you can see the Material doesn't need batches. The confusing part is it worked with no issues 2 weeks ago. The only changes werer to the Price Control. Reburb and New are set to V - MAP. Defective is set to S.

Even without batch management you should have a record in MCHA, as split valuation makes technical use of batches. Can you list all entries for from MCHA for your material?

OK I ran a list of materials in the MCHA table. My item is not in that table. How does it get there? Is there a field in the Material Master that we missed?

the batch will be created automatically with a goods receipt.

I just tested the case in my system and I only get a warning M3552 Material & does not need to be handled in batches when I enter the valuation type into the batch number field in the PO

How is your setting for split valuation Local definition of valuation types? did you eventually set a valuation type as mandatory for external procurement?

Did you make the batch number field in ME21N mandatory?

Does it work with the material that worked 2 weeks ago?

No field is not mandatory. Now that you say the batch is created automatically, I have a theory. 2 weeks ago I did the Good Rec't via MIGO. This time I did it via IW41(Work Order Confirmation). I'm wondering if that's why the material didn't load into the table? The materials I did with MIGO are in the table(MCHA). The ones via IW41 are not.

What do you think Jurgen?

didn't you start this question with a screenshot showing a purchase order? How is this now related to IW41?

Purchase order is external procurement, work order is internal procurement.

Did you eventually setup the split valuation after the work order was already created?

Sorry...I'm going in all kinds of direction. I'm learning Split Valuation pretty much on my own. We have never used it before. I think we figured it out.

I didn't need to enter the Batch on the PO in order for the defective part to go into the Vendor inventory. Turns out you do that on the PGI.

Thanks for your time.

Since you changed the price controls, try removing the stock and create the PO again.
