Activity price changes mid year

Hello Gurus,

My clients are using project systems for project costing. Their requirement is to maintain the Activity Plan Prices for the next 5 yrs. This is so because if they plan for a prospective project that may carryover to next year, they need to find the cost of the project.

I have the following questions in this regard:-

1) I set the plan activity price of an activity at Rs 50 today for next year and start costing for a project, suppose next year I feel the prices need to be changed to Rs 55 and I am at period 4 of next year.

Now, if I change the activity price at period 4 will the plan prices input into that project for period 1,2 and 3 will also be suitably updated?

2) Is there any chance of any data inconsistency at any point?

would be nice to get you views on this issue.

      Hi once more...

      i performed the test in our system...

      cj40 project costing with activity types

      kp26 change activity price for the cost center used in cj40

      cj40 examine the cost->no change occurs unless we make a significant change to project costing (ex erase the number of hours and write them once more). It was only at that time the system managed to re-read the new activity prices of kp26.

      What do you think? Your business needs are different?
