Moving Average Price Incorrect


We have standard pricing in SAP. However, the Moving average price which being calculated for statistical purposes only, in Material master record, shows a value exponentially higher than the standard price, even though we do not have enough inventory into the system to make the moving average price shoot up to an order of several $mns.

I have checked the MBEWH table and the price started shooting up significantly from the standard price a few months ago. I have checked MB5B to see what transactions might have affected the price, but none of the transactions listed there have affected the price to make it shoot up.

What I am speculating is that another program may be errorneously updating the MBEW-VERPR field in MatMas. Any suggestions?

    I dont think that any other program will update the MAP field incorrectly, as this would be a dramatic effect the material valuation if you valuate the material with MAP.

    SAP follows the same rules with the statistical MAP (in case of standard price valuation) as it does with the normal MAP.

    Because of this, such effects happen if the GR is posted while the PO price was incorrect. Hence the MAP is effected, either it becomes too high or too low.

    Subsequent goods issues are valuated at this prices.

    invoice receipts will then distribute differences to the remaining stock, which turns the MAP into the other directly even with a much bigger difference to your standard price.

      Hi all

      we are facing the same issue in PO with returns indicator, i.e. at movement type 161. and only if we have more than one item line. Probably, this is the program bug which does not take second line "returns" indicator.

      Also I saw you use 161 and 252, which sounds to me we both use SAP IS Retail.

      Have anybody raised ticket to SAP? or found any related Note that fix that calculation?
