    Value Strings indicates the posting rule that always contains the same account assignment characteristics for a certain transaction or event (for example a goods movement or an invoice receipt).

    Each goods movement is assigned to a Value String and each Value String inturn is assigned to Transaction/ Event keys. These settings are pre-defined and can not be changed.

    This valuation key indicates the posting rule that always contains

    the account assignment characteristics for a certain transaction

    or event (for example a goods movement or an invoice receipt).

    This string is needed for the purposes of automatic account determination

    Eg:- Please check movement type 501 in transaction OMJJ

    (check accounting grouping) here we can see that WA01 value

    string is attached ,based on this Transaction/event key will get

    determined from table T156W

    BUSTW CNT02 VORSL

    WA01 01 BSX

    WA01 02 GBB

    WA01 03 PRD

    i hope this information helps

    Regards

    The value strings contain keys for the posting transactions that can

    lead to G/L account updates in the case of an FI-relevant posting. These

    value strings are predefined by SAP. You cannot change value strings or

    the transactions they comprise in Customizing. For each of these posting

    transactions, you can set up automatic postings in dependence on the

    other influencing factors.

    The value string controls the process of G/L account determination for

    transactions/events of the movement type (see unit Valuation and

    Account Assignment), whereas the quantity string controls the updating

    of the material master fields.

    In SAP R/3, the value string WA01 is assigned to various goods issues

    and other goods receipts. Further differentiation in the automatic

    account determination process for these different movements is

    accomplished via the account grouping code.

    Hi,

    These value string plays a major role in Automatic Account Assignment. (AAA)

    These are SAP std , we can not define new Value String ..

    You can go to t.code :SE16 enter T156* press F4 you can see all the details

    For WE01 what are the transaction keys there you can see.

    For any movement type you do in Inventory managment based on the movement type the G/l accounts are determined by these value string and quantity string.

    These are predifned no one can change

    but if you want to change you can do in SM30

    T156 W -Value string

    T156M -Quantity String

    Go to the table and see the values
