Error cost estimate for MFBF in REM

we have 2 REM profile one with No reporting piont with activity posting (A) and one without activity posting no reporting point (B) as attached but when we are doing MFBF we are getting error in cost estimate for A but for same material when we change REM profile to B system is posting entry.

diffrenece between 2 in config is only tick on activity posting

what could be the reason its happening for all materials ..

    You did not provide any details about the error you are facing during the cost estimate. Can you please provide details about the error message?

    • Hi Caetano,

      Error is "error determining the cost estimate" as for this material MF30 preliminary cost estimate is not run.

      The issue is for REM profile for which post activity is ticked it is showing error correctly but if we change REM profile for same material with another without post activities tick it is allowing to post document (which it was not allowing earlier )

      The issue is its not giving error even if preliminary costing not done

    When you activate "Post activity" and seletced radio button "using data from Prel. costing.." system will try to post the activity cost from the standard cost estimate run on the particumar "Production version" where Back flush is posted.

    To overcome this issue,You need to run the Standard cost estimate for every versions you created for the material.

    If you have only one routing for all Pversion,then you have to select the first radio button.

    • Hello Sir,

      System is giving correct error of cost estimate for REM profile for which Post activtity is active,

      but for another REM profile its not giving the error...If we do run MF30 then the error itself goes.

      Issue is why REM profile without post activity is allowing to post ?

      In test case material is same and Pversion is also same on one REM (changed material master for REM to check for both profile) its giving error on other its not.
