Error during calculation of work in process (WIP)

Hi all,

I have a problem during calculation of WIP. After entering all data, system reports me that WIP calculation could not be done because of following error:

Create a cost element for the usage of inventory (line ID COP)

Message no. KJ307


In results analysis, capitalized costs are created and apportioned to the line IDs. If the Split creation/usage indicator is set in the extended control of the results analysis version, then the usage of the capitalized costs is written under a separate results analysis cost element for each line ID.


Go into Customizing for Product Cost Controlling and carry out the following steps:

1. Create a cost element for the capitalized costs used for line ID COP.

2. Enter this cost element under Define Update for Results Analysis.

I can't find transaction or path for solution from the procedure. Pls help.

Thank you all.

      I found solution in this menu path.

      SPRO --> Controlling --> Product Cost Controlling --> Cost Object Controlling --> Product Cost by Order --> Period-End Closing --> Work in Process --> Define Update

      I've entered same cost element for creation and update (for both wip and reservers) and seams that everything is working.

      Thank you all.
