    Hi Tarun,

    suppose in free godds inclusive with line item genration , there will be two line items one is main item and second is free item , if you set this the value of the free good item will transfer to main item., then for second line item it shows Zero value (Free).

    Set Transfer of cost to main item

    Choose Billing Document type F2 , Choose Delivery Document type LF , Select the combination click on item control button under dialogue structure. Choose item category TAN ,Click on Details icon and check cumulate cost indicator [Check]

    This indicator transfers the free goods cost to main item.

    Hope it helps

    Regards

    Ramesh.

    Hi Tarun,

    In this option we set the cost of free goods item and this will be assigned to the higher level items.

    A Copy control will be set for the delivery document types, delivery item categories and the billing types.

    This is basically done at the main item level and this cost is just a display i.e., statistical and does not have any impact on the overall price of the material. This is used for analysis.

    Hope that clears your point.

    Friends, any ideas/corrections or additions to this are most welcome.

    Thanks & regards,

    Swami

    Hi tarun

    If you want to transfer the free goods cost to higher level item then you need to check the box Set Transfer of cost to main item in copy control VTLA .for the item category .Say if the item category for header item is TAN then you need to check the box Set Transfer of cost to main item for that item category . So if any 1 free goods material are there means that 1pc of free goods cost will be transferred to item category TAN

    Example : Say we have material A and Material B and for 10pcs of Material A 1pc of Material B is free and

    We do the Set Transfer of cost to main itemis done because it has following advantages

    Firstly we should know the cost of the material B once we do PGI.

    Secondly , Once the billing document is released to FI the cost of the free goods will be flowing to a separate G/L account.

    Thirdly and Mainly if we have CO-PA assigned then after billing document is saved , then we can know how many free goods have been given to that customer and what is the cost of the free goods also we can know . CO consultants generate the report if required
