S4 HANA 1610 COPA : Activated AB & CB COPA for the Op Corn

Hello Experts,

For an Operating Concern, we have activated both the COPA (AB & CB).

We are using S4 HANA 1610 OP.

My observation is :

When the PGI is posted, the COGS is hit based on the GL which is maintained under GBB-VAY.

I see 2 Accounting Docs, since I have activated COGS Split based on Cost Components.

The COGS main GL GBB-VAY is getting offset thru GLs maintained in COGS Split.

Expert opinion which I need :

I understand the COGS (VAX + VAY) will be double in the Accounting books but will System never hit the COGS GL which is maintained under GBB-VAX.

I do not see COGS captured in the CB COPA posted in Table CE1xxxx. I have maintained KE4I for CB COPA. Please let me know what must be missing.

I do not see any Profitability Segment captured in Sales Order > Double click on Items/Material > Account Assignment Tab. However, I see CB COPA Doc posted in CE1xxxx with correct combination of Characteristics. Please let me know if there should be a PSG captured or my expectation is incorrect.

    Hi Hussein Merchant

    In S/4HANA, if you have activated COGS Split, the posting of final COGS will always be to the split GL Account as per cost component structure. This should be the accounting entries which should happen:

    COGS A/c Dr

    To Stock - FG

    COGS Split 1 Dr

    COGS Split 2 Dr

    COGS Split 3 Dr

    To COGS A/c

    You should total up the COGS Split GL to get the final COGS. However, the COGS will be updated in CB COPA, once you do the billing through the VPRS or a similar condition type. You should be able to see the CB COPA Document only with the billing document, where the Value will be updated with COGS. The PS should ideally be updated in Controlling Document for AB Copa and at the time of billing for CB COPA.

      The other thing I could think of is that value might have been initialized using exit COPA0005. Also check in your pricing if cost is flowing in the condition type. Also, check with your SD Consultant if item category has been maintained as relevant for costs. Also you need to check the copy controls in SD (VTFL).

      On the CO Side, also check, if you have document summarization active in KE2S.

      Thanks & regards
