    Dear Mastan rao,

    Material ledger data is valuation and control data for a material (with a particular valuation type, if applicable) in a plant for a particular posting period. Material ledger data also contains data for movements that are relevant to the valuation of the material. This data is collected in the material ledger as it is entered in the system.

    Use: Material ledger data forms the basis of actual costing and is used to manage valuation prices in multiple currencies and valuations. Consequently, material ledger data supplements the material master record. In addition, material ledger data can refer to materials that are part of sales order stock and project stock.

    Structure: The most important information in material ledger data is:

    Valuation price, inventory quantity, and inventory value in up to three currencies and/or valuations

    Indicator for price determination (as in the material master record)

    Control of the valuation prices (as in the material master record)

    Period status of the material

    Integration: Using material ledger data, the system collects information on material movements (such as goods receipts and invoice receipts) in each period at historical exchange rates. This data is used during material price determination to calculate new valuation prices for the material. Then, the material stock account is reconciled in multiple currencies with the accounts in Financial Accounting.

    If the material ledger is active for a particular plant (and consequently for all materials in that plant), material ledger data is automatically created upon the creation of the material master record or upon production startup. You can see whether the material ledger is active by looking in the accounting view of the material master record.

    As per my experience Implementing material ledger along with upgrade should not have any impact on upgrade activity but it is recommended that u treat these two as two individual project. If you are using some tools like solution manager etc u should ideally create two different projects in Solman. one of them should be of implementation type for material ledger while the other one should be an upgrade project. u can further choose ur raodmap etc accordingly and move ahead.

    Hope this helps.

    We are working in an upgrade implementation of Release 4.6C to ECC 6.0.

    For revaluate consumptions in Material Ledger on Release 4.6C we use the programs ZSAPCKML_COGS to made a revaluation and the program ZML_VALUE_FLOW_ANALYZER (that was download with the note 412963) to analyze the actual value flow in the material ledger.

    For replace the program ZSAPCKML_COGS we will apply the standard solution contain on the note 648678 (ZSAPCKML_COGS Upgrade Release 4.7 or higher), but, these note not contain solutions relate with the program ZML_VALUE_FLOW_ANALYZER.

    Our questions are:

    There is an updated version of the program ZML_VALUE_FLOW_ANALYZER?

    Can we continue using the program ZML_VALUE_FLOW_ANALYZER that is contained on the note 412963?

    On ECC 6.0, there is a report that replace the old ZML_VALUE_FLOW_ANALYZER program?
