FI document summarization is active / the results may be incorrect in MB5B

Hi All,

I am using transaction MB5B .Input fields are Material ,Plant, Stock posting date.I am inputting Stock Type as VALUATED STOCK.

I am getting the warning message:

FI document summarization is active / the results may be incorrect

In this system, document summarization is activated for accounting documents. On the initial screen, you set the indicator Valuated Stock.

This can mean that report MB5B for valuated stock results in incorrect values for the start or end date. During document summarization, the system does not generate all entries in the index table BSIM between the material numbers and the accounting document items. However, these entries are required by report MB5B in order to display a complete list. This means that report MB5B cannot process all relevant accounting document items for the material.

Procedure

You should only set the Valuated Stock indicator if document summarization is deactivated for accounting documents.

Can you please explain the meaning of FI Document Summarization?

Thanks in Advance

Payal Saxena

    Hi

    Pls check if you have activiated document summarization. The path for the same is :

    IMG>Financial Accounting>General Ledger Accounting>Perodic Processing>Integration>Material Management>Perform Document Summarization for Materials Management>Ref Transaction -MKPF

    Hi Payal,

    FI Document summarization would take place, all documents pertaining to MM and SD integrated with FI (I.e. Accounting document generated at time of GR, MIRO etc..) would be summarized based on GL, Profit Center and tax rate level. It is maily done to decrease the line items thus avaoiding storage space issues.

    In summarization, you define the fields you do not explicitly want to see in

    FI documents for postings to be made via the accounting interface.

    You define document summarizations depending on object type, for

    example, for invoicing, orders or invoices received. You cannot take

    all fields for summarization, but rather only those for which account

    assignments are made.

    Now ur error might have come coz, earlier u might have been getting material at line item level, but not after doc summerization

    Regards,

    Kiran

      Hi Kiran

      Thanks for the early reply.

      I have few doubts on this :

      1) What do you exactly mean by "Only those fields can be summarized for which account assignments are made."

      2) What is actually done from FI end in Document Summarization apart from customizing in G/L accounting/Business Transactions/Integration/Material Management/Perform Document Summarization.

      Actually,we never faced this kind of problem previously while running MB5B.

      Regards

      Payal

    Could you please let me know how did you solve this issue.
