    Hello Lekhram,

    'Country of Origin' field is in Info Record and there is no such field in MIGO. Probably, this can be entered in Text field in MIGO (Item Text->Where tab). Even in Info Record, only one 'Country of Origin' can be maintained. In that case, we may have to go with main country.

    Why do you want to capture the country of origin? Do you plan to use it further? If yes, you can look at batch classification (if the material is batch managed). That way you can track where the batch came from.

    If material is not batch managed, the above suggestion of a text field (Item Short text) in MIGO is a good suggestion.

    Hope this helps.

    The best way to handle your case is - you need to activate the valuation type for the mateial based on the country of orging given by SAP standaata category.

    Use split valuation : see the explanation below.

    For certain materials, it is necessary to valuate the various stocks in a particular valuation area separately. Reasons for this include:

    Different origins of the material

    Different grades of quality for the material

    Different statuses for the material

    Differentiation between in-house production and external procurement

    Differentiation between different deliveries

    In split valuation, you can distinguish between partial stocks of a

    material according to certain criteria and valuate them separately.

    The material stock is divided according to valuation category and

    valuation type:

    o The valuation category determines how the partial stocks are divided,

    that is, according to which criteria.

    o The valuation type describes the characteristics of the individual


    With the function "Setting" you can determine:

    o which valuation categories exist in your company (global categories)

    o which valuation types exist in your company (global types)

    o which valuation types belong to which valuation category

    o which valuation categories exist in a valuation area (local



    Your entries are only relevant if you set split valuation as active in

    the function "Global settings".

    Default settings

    In the standard SAP R/3 System, the following valuation categories are


    o B procurement type

    with the valuation types:

    "EIGEN" for in-house production

    "FREMD" for external procurement

    o H Origin

    o X automatic valuation (only for batch)


    To select split valuation, proceed as follows:

    1. Determine the valuation categories and valuation types that are

    allowed for all valuation areas:

    - global valuation categories via menu "Goto > Global Categories"

    - global valuation types via menu "Goto > Global Types"

    2. Allocate the valuation types to the valuation categories.

    a) Select "Goto > Global Categories".

    b) Position the cursor on a valuation category and select "Goto >

    Global Categories > Allocations > Types->Category".

    c) Activate the valuation types you want.

    3. Determine the local valuation categories for each valuation area.

    a) Select "Goto > Local definitions".

    b) Position the cursor on a valuation area and select "Goto > Local

    Definitions > Allocate Categoires->Org.units". You obtain a list

    of the global valuation categories.

    c) Activate the categories to be used in this valuation area.

    The system creates the local valuation types based on the allocations

    under point 2.

    Only now can you create a master record with split valuation.
