Hi all,

I did config for Automatic Account Determination without Material Master and everything works well. So, now when I create PR/PO and enter Mat. group the G/L account is populated automatically though valuation class config.Thanks Dibyendu Patra for post.

My question is what if I want to create PR/PO using material master and use valuation class from that I enter since is mandatory field for both scenarios and I don't want to maintain Valuation class in all material masters. In other words, some sort of switch saying if valuation class not maintained in Material master than use it from

Any ideas are welcomed.

Just read the name of the of the IMG task again: Entry Aids for Items without a Material Master (OMQW)

this name already answers that this config is only used if you do not use material masters.

If you use material masters then the valuation class has to be there.

If its valuated materials with material master, then the system will follow the account determination through the valuation class in material master only. As the name indicates, the account determination without material master will work when material code is not available - If there is no material master, system will check the material group and then the corresponding valuation class and then proceed with account determination.

Moreover, for valuated materials, accounting view is mandatory if you want to create PO. If you go to accounting view, the valuation class is mandatory, which is hard coded check in the program level.


If you need a different behavior, you may check the feasibility of development.
