Account determination for shipment cost document

Hi All

Upon Good issue of a shipment cost document, I need to accrue the cost to a particular GL account. I need to know how the pricing procedure for Shipment costs is linked to account determination.

If we look at MM pricing procedure, we have the Account key - accruals / provisions to identify various types of G/L accounts for accruals. But in case of pricing procedures for shipment cost I do not see that field.

Please help

Thanks

Vijay

    Hi,

    The values from shipment cost are copied to Billing documents using copy controls for Delivery to Billing.

    In copy controls for Delivery to Billing at item level you have the field price source, here you select 'F' Shipment cost. System automatically copies the shipment costs to billing. In SD pricing procedure these condition types are maintained with account key's for which we have accounts integration.

    Hope this will help you, if not revert back.

    Hi,

    Account determination in shiping cost as below -

    Goto SPRO->Logistics Execution->Transportation->Shipment Cost->Shipment Cost document->

    Define Shipment Cost type and item category

    In Shipment cost configuration, each shipment cost type is linked to item category(which is not sales item category).

    Identifying the Account key or Account Modifier

    In that item category, we define the account assignment catefory for that item category.

    For this account assignment category having a account modified and the path for this is

    SPRO->MM->Purchasing->Account assignment->Maintain Account assignment category

    If account assignment category in item category is K then Account modifier is VBR and the same like others.

    Identifying the Valuation Class

    For shipment Cost type and item category is link to valuation class and the path for this is

    SPRO->Logistics Execution->Transportation->Shipment Cost->Shipment Cost document->

    Define Shipment Cost type and item category

    Account Determination

    Based on valuation class and Account modifier, systerm determine the GL Account through transaction OBYC in GBB.

    GBB->Valuation String->Account Modifer->Valuation Class->Gl Account

    or

    GBB->Account Modifer->Valuation Class->Gl Account

    Like in SD, we will not maintain any account keys in pricing procedure.

    Accounts are posted through MM Process i.e. based on valuation class and account modifer.

    From Pricing procedure, system only lift the values against condition type in document and use the MM Process of posting values in accounts.

    Rewards if it helps

    Regards

    Goutham
