Issue in split valuation

we got a material which is defined for local valuation categories and valuation types for a plant. By mistake the material was not created as split vluated, but as normal material for plant. Now while trying to activtae split valuation (no material doc or po for material at plant) in mm01 we get error message that material already manintained for event. even in mm02, valuation category is greyed out. In customising for the plant no qty/value update is allowed for material type for plant. now,

1. if we want split valuation to be activated can we acheive this by activating qunatity/ value update or both for material type of the plant?

2. as initally material is not vlaue updated why no problem came while assigning initial valaution class while craeting material and now not allowing it to be split valauted?

    Hi

    There are some prerequisite for split valuation.

    1) Split valuation active for the plant.

    2) configure the split valuation ( Valuation type, Valuation category & local definition)

    3) Make sure that the Material type has qty & value update indicator checked

    4) Create the material in MM01 with valuation category. This is must, if you forget to maintain before saving the material you will not be able to assign the valuation category again in the MMR.

    5) Extend the material accounting view for valuation types.

    In your case activate the qty & value updation in config and create a new material then It should be ok.

    hope it helps.

    Thanks /Karthik

    Hello,

    Are you confident that the valuation category was not updated in MM01 BY MISTAKE.

    this field shall be greyed out in MM01 if value is not updating.

    thanks,

    Hi Anand,

    Unless and untill no transactions are done for that material, we can maintain split valuation for that material.

    But once transactions like PIR, PR, PO, Contracts, etc are done for the material, split valuation cannot be maintained.

    1. if we want split valuation to be activated can we acheive this by activating qunatity/ value update or both for material type of the plant?

    Please verify if there are some transactions are done for this material or not. I don't think by activating quantity/value update for both material and plant will work.

    You need to create a seperate material code

    2. as initally material is not vlaue updated why no problem came while assigning initial valaution class while craeting material and now not allowing it to be split valauted?

    Though material is not split valuated, valuation class can be maintained because accounting view is initially maintained for this material in which data is maintained at valuation level.
