ML Post Closing and Inventory Value without 'Stock Coverage Check'

We have been doing ML settlement without 'stock coverage check' so far.

While analyzing the stock values, it is found that for certain materials, a very huge value were posted as price differences and hence showing a very high stock value, even though the stock quantity is 1 Ton (base unit).

I think it is because 'no stock coverage' was there and the system posted all the price differences to the available material quantity and hence a very high stock value.

How can we correct it now through an adjustment posting ?

From the next closing onwards, I will consider 'stock coverage check' also to avoid this situation.

It is good that you already aware the reason why the huge amount was posted for.

This will happen during ML run, for correction, the only way is the re-run of Material ledger run.

If you want to distribute non distributed price differences you can use the deletion option of the PL quantity indicator then re-run of ML run.

Note: please think twice while taking the decision of re-run of ML, as it is having an impact on other areas also.

It is better to rectify the mistake in the next ML run.

Thanks Pavan.

As you said, I will be careful from next period onwards.

But can I correct the already posted one by changing the price in the MR21 transaction ?

Best regards
