"Inventory" accounting entry should not be generated for Non-Valuated material

Hello Experts

We have non-valuated material for which Purchase requisition is created through MRP run against WBS. In this process, system is asking for OBYC-BSX GL account , even though it is a non-valuated material. To prevent error, we configured BSX for this material

After PR, PO was created and on GRN we are getting Inventory accounting entry for Non-val material. We do not want inventory accounting entry for non-valuated material. Can you please suggest why system is generating accounting entry ?

We are using account assignment category Q, WBS as object, and we were hoping system will pick GBB-VBR (expense gl ) instead of BSX.

Surprisingly when PR is manually created using ME51N, this issue does not arise. In this case, system is defaulting expense GL.

"Value updating" tick is removed against this material type.

Expected entry at GRN

Dr Expense GL (GBB-VBR)

Cr GR/IR

System behaviour

Dr Inventory

Cr GR/IR

Please advise how to prevent inventory accounting entry for non-val material.

Regards

Kapil

    The settings (quantity managed / value managed) for the material type are applicable for normal warehouse stock

    but you have actually special stock.

    Here you define in the project whether the stock will be valuated or not, transaction OPSA , see Wiki: https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/ERPLO/Step+by+step+configuration+for+Valuated+Project+stock

    you might also want to check OSS notes like:

    and 372322 - Stock posting line of valuated special stk 'E'&'Q'

    Hi Kapil,

    Make sure the value update is untick for that material type and plant in OMS2.

    Try not extending accounting view for those materials.

      We did not want to open accounting view but system almost forced us. Such material are manufactured also and system gave us error that GBB-AUF GL account is required. For that we opened accounting view.

      We do not want to bring value of these material into inventory gl account.
