Activating split valuation for existing material code

All SAP Gurus,

We have certain material codes in ROH and HALB material types in a plant.

We are doing external procurement as well as inter-company stock transfer (STO) of the same materials.

We want to keep the separate accounting of the material which is procured from out side and which has been received through STO.

As the material codes are same, in my view only solution is to have split valuation for these materials.

Now, as the materials are already in use since very long, will it be possible to actvate split valuation for these materials?

If yes then how?

Is there any alternate way to tackle with the problem?

Regards,

    Hi,

    Better you go with Split Valuation. But Before u go to split valution u have u clear all Pending Documents for that material.

    U must not have stock in for that particular material.

    In Split valuation, use material Valutaion type STO or External procurements.

    Donot make any of the Valuation Type as Default....it will create problem in Future.

    Hope Help u !

    REgards,

    hi,

    Yes you can go with the split valuation but as you told that you have this material type in use from long time, so before activating you need to check all the old document, any open documents, or any document which is half settled, or whose procurement cycle is not completed...For those document you need to make all settlement and be sure that you will not use this material w/o split valuation...

    After this this do activate the split valuation..

    If you don't wanna use split valuation, then create the new material type copying the exsisting one and activate the split valuation for it OR make the auto account determination setting for it different G/L account as per your requirement...

    Regards
