Valution category

Hi experts,

I am trying to remove valuation category of material in material master accounting view. I am getting a error that Valuation data already exists for valuation types that are

not compatible with the new valuation category.

WM stocks (quants) already exist. Explain me why this error is coming?

Thank yiu

    George,

    You have the stock of materila with different valuated price, so system is not allowing you to change the Valuation category in mateirla master.

    Hi,

    Since stock already exists for that material it is not allowing to change the valuation category.

    You have to stock for that material for current & prevous period then try to change the valuation category.

    It's like deactivating the split valuation.

    Regards

    Ravi Shankar.

    Dear,

    I believe, you have activated split valuation for your material and know you want to deactivate it. Since once you have activated split valuation and have done stock entries for goods issues and goods receipt for the mateial, as stock are avaliable and also there will be open PO, WO and SO against this mateial. So in this situation system won't allow you to change the valuation class or valuation catergory for the assigined material.

    The only solution, close all the open PO, WO, or SO and post all the avaliable stock to some dummy store or by using physical inventory and then change the valuation catergory or valuation class for the material.

    Hope its clarifys,

    Regards,

    Prashanth Pai.

    Hi

    Split valuation allows you to maintain different prices/ valuation for your material/ stock. If the material stock has been maintained at different prices then you cannot remove valuation category for that material. You need to post the stock to a dummy material and then remove split valuation. Then post the stock to the material.

    Thanks
