Accounting value difference at the time of Reversal of PGI

Hi! All,

Need some clarification.

I have created a Delivery document and done the PGI before the Costing Run was carried out for the material. After the PGI accounts did the Costing run , but for some reason the PGI was required to be reversed. When the PGI was reversed by VL09, the accounting document that got generated had the current value as per the cost in the material master.

So the Accounting document gets the value form the cost of the material. How can we control,so that values are picked up with reference to the previous document generated at the time of PGI.

    Hi Ashuthosh,

    This is not possible in SAP.

    When material movements take place, the value is updated according to the kind of material price maintained in the master. A reversal for a goods movement will not have the same value as the value of the original movement,but will have the value of the material at that point of reversal. This makes sense because at any given point of time, you are calculating the value of the stock you have and that is always based on the current value of the material in the material master and not based on the value at which the material was sent or procured. Hence the functionality you are asking is not possible and it also should not be done, as it will have lot of implications on the material valuation.

    Better you discuss once with MM and PP consultants also on this. They can explain the implications of this change better
