vax and vay

hi,

VAX: for goods issues for sales orders without

account assignment object (the account is not a cost element)

VAY: for goods issues for sales orders with

account assignment object (account is a cost element)

1) how to know when to use VAX and VAY? i know vax is not cost element but vay has cost element. so when i do goods issue, how do i know it is vax or vay? i know it is maintained in obyc but how do i know why the system know it should pick which 1?

from the accounting document in VL03N->MB03, i can see the offsetting account is not a cost element.

this is the reason i am asking how does the system know to pick VAX and not VAY.

2) why sales order is a cost object?

thanks

    Hi,

    There are Standard setting in the SAP. From movement types system will pick the relevant transaction keys.

    We can see in the T.Code OMJJ with movement type 601 and account grouping.

    2) Cost object in SAP is nothing but cost or revenue collector.

    Thanks and regards,

      Hi,

      1) i notice in OMJJ account grouping, there is a column Cns (consumption posting). may i know why VAY is assigned with V (consumption) whereas VAX is empty? why VAY is considered as consumption and VAX is not?

      when u do postings against the account assignment object, it is treated by default as consumtion. As VAY is assigned to cost object u require consumption cost element.

      2) meaning with consumption posting V need to have cost element? why?

      when consumtion need to be booked as a cost for the "cost objec"(account assignment) it has to be cost element.

      3) i do not cost object like cost center, wbs, IO. but why sales order also considered as cost object?

      Std SAP gives an option to treat the sales order also as cost object specially for the scenarios of Sales Order Costing.

      Regards
