    Hi,

    The valuation category determines which valuation types are allowed to use.

    The valuation category indicates that whether the material‘s stock is to be valuated as one unit or in parts.The valuation category used as a key that indicates the criteria for defining partial stock.

    Hope helpful and then reward.

    Hi

    During Split valuation,the valuation category is used to determine in what basis your stocks are valuated together ...for eg) Quality or Origion or Status. etc.

    In Material master--> Acc.View 1--> Gen.Data Tab.... you have to maintain the valuation category for your Header material if you want to use split valuation for your material.

    Reward if useful

    Hi,

    To differentiate between material stocks you must define a valuation category and a valuation type . the valuation category determines the criteria for distinguishing between stocks. the valuation type describes the possible features of the partial stocks.

    In material master in accoun ting view you have to enter the valuation category.

    The valuation category specifies which criterion should be used as the basis for differentiating between the various partial stocks.

    The standard system contains several default valuation categories, for example:

    B for procurement type

    The stock is divided up according to whether the material is manufactured in-house or procured externally.

    H for origin

    The stock is divided up according to where it was delivered from.

    Prerequisites

    The system administrator can set up additional valuation categories in Customizing. For each valuation category you must define which valuation areas it is valid in.

    Features

    Every material subject to split valuation is assigned to a valuation category in the material master record. The material can then be managed using the valuation types defined for this valuation category.

    The valuation category X is a special case: no valuation types are predefined for this category. At goods receipt, a batch is created for the material entered. This also serves as its valuation type. This makes it possible to valuate every goods receipt separately, for example, by using the order number as the valuation type.

    In the case of partial deliveries for a purchase order, you can only valuate each partial delivery separately if goods-receipt-based Invoice Verification has been defined in the purchase order (the field GR based IV must be selected on the order item screen). If goods-receipt-based Invoice Verification has not been defined, the valuation type that you enter for the first partial delivery is binding for the following partial deliveries.

    In the Accounting view of Material Master Valuation category is given.

    Dear Vineeth,

    Valuation category is used if you want to have a split valuation i.e. you have a option of differentiating partial stocks of material according to particular criteria & handling them differently regarding valuation within a plant.

    Why Required? : 1)Your valuation of inhouse & external procurement may be different

    2) Distinguish based on Quality so value

    3)Different batches have different value

    Valuation category could be In House/External , Indian / Imported

    Following configuration reqd.

    1)In global setting we have to define Valuation category( Say P-Procurement) & Valuation type( Int. / Ext)

    2) Active split valuation in MM

    3) Assign valuation type to category in customizing

    5) In Material Master enter valuation category in accounting view & choose price control V

    6) Extend Material Master view for both valuation type

    7) valuation category to be active /assign for plant

    8) In local definition Define Valuation category to Valuation area.

    Then for every transaction ( Valuation relevant) may be GR , GI , Phy. Inventory you must mention valuation type during transaction to get your material valuated separately.

    This is all about valuation category,

    If useful reward points,

    Vivek Maitra
