Re: default Valuation type

Hi Experts.

I am in issue where the client is having split valuation.

Now on creating an subcontracting order the the system is asking for VAluation type

I mean the system is able to find the valuation type for the header material But not for the chiled material.

is there any way where the child Item valution type could be made default as it has 3 valuation type.

The client does not want to enter the valuation type all the times.

    Go to OMWC, there click on "Global Categories", here position cursor on the Valuation category (which is maintained for Material Master) and click on "Change" button, here check have you entered any Valuation type in field "Default: val.type ext.procure."

    This defaults the Valuation Type in Purchasing Documents.

    In MIGO, if you don't want to enter valuation types manually then use concept of Batch Determination if your materials are batch managed.

    Procedure for Batch Determination: -

    1. Go to OMCG and here put Batch Search Strategy "ME0001" against Movement Types 541 and 543 O

    2. Now in MBC1 - Maintain condition record for Strategy Type "ME02" and here keep Selection Type as "O"

    After doing the above settings, system will not determine the batch and valuation type during Subcontracting PO, but at the time of Transfer Posting (MB1B) and Consumption of Components (MIGO), system will determine batches and corresponding valuation type

    If materials are not batch managed then go for "Stock Determination Procedure"

    1. OSPX - Define Strategies for Stock Determination

    Here take a copy of Stock Determination group "0001" and create a new and assign to your plant.

    After maintaining Stock Determination group and rule go to "Stock Determination Item Table", here enter stock type as "F", Storage Location (if required, otherwise keep it blank), enter priority as 1, 2, 3 and valuation types against that in which sequence you want these to be determined.

    Now in SPRO > MM > Inventory Management and Physical Inventory > Stock Determination > Assign Stock Determination Rule in the Applications > Inventory Management > Here assign Stock Determination Rule to 541 and 543

    Now assign Stock determ. group in MM02, under "Plant data / stor.2" view of material master

    Now in MIGO - Click on "Stock Determination" button to get the batch/valuation types automatically.

      Actually my role is only upto creating the SUB CON PO. After this The third party will do the MIGO using A BAPI. Now the BAPI is not able to get the VAluation type for the child item.

      Moreover the child item has 3 valuation types still the system is not doing any selection for it.

      Please advice,

    Please maintain stock determination rule in OSPX.

    In MIGO click on "batch determination" in case the valuation type is not auto determined.

    just try it and let me know
