    hi

    If you want to change the Price control from standard price to moving average price

    You can make this change at any time. The moving average price (which until now has been updated for informational purposes only) replaces the standard price and is used for valuation from now on.

    If You wanna change the price control from moving average price to standard price

    You cannot make this change in the following two cases:

    If the material master record is set up as a valuation header record for a material

    subject to split valuation .

    If the standard price comes from costing and is not equal to the moving average

    price

    If the change is possible, the moving average price becomes the standard price, which is then used for valuation.You change the type of price control by overwriting the price control indicator in the material master record with the new indicator.Changing the type of price control for a material does not change the value of the material stock,

    since in both cases the current price becomes the new price.

    Hello

    In the SAP System, there are two types of price control:

    Standard price & Moving average price.

    These two types of price control differ in how they handle price variances resulting from goods receipts or invoice receipts.

    Changing the Type of Price Control

    Under certain conditions, you can change the type of price control:

    From standard price to moving average price

    You can make this change at any time. The moving average price (which until now has been updated for informational purposes only) replaces the standard price and is used for valuation from now on.

    From moving average price to standard price

    You cannot make this change in the following two cases:

    If the material master record is set up as a valuation header record for a material subject to split valuation

    If the standard price comes from costing and is not equal to the moving average price

    If the change is possible, the moving average price becomes the standard price, which is then used for valuation.

    You change the type of price control by overwriting the price control indicator in the material master record with the new indicator.

    Changing the type of price control for a material does not change the value of the material stock, since in both cases the current price becomes the new price.

    An example is given below:

    Standard price to Moving average price

    Material A

    Price control: S

    Moving average Price: 8

    Standard Price: 10

    Total Stock: 100

    Total Stock value: 1000

    Now we change the material price control to 'V'. Then

    Material A

    Price control: M

    Moving average price:10

    Standard price: 10

    Total Stock: 100

    Total Stock value: 1000

    Moving average to standard price

    Material B

    Price control: V

    Moving average Price: 8

    Standard Price: 0

    Total Stock: 100

    Total Stock value: 800

    Now we change the material price control to 'S'. Then

    Material B

    Price control: S

    Moving average price:8

    Standard price: 8

    Total Stock: 100

    Total Stock value: 800

    Hope this will clear your doubts.

    Dear,

    You can change price control for material master with MM02.

    If you can't change price control with MM02

    Then use MR21, make equal price both moving and standard and then change price control with MM02.

    Remember: -

    V : - If you material is external procurment then put V.

    S : - If material is your in-house producation then put S.

    In case of finish good in all manufacture plant maintain S and in C&F and CA plant put V.

    Regards,
