    Hi,

    The account category reference is an artificial code which allows flexibility in linking material types with valuation classes.. Account category reference which is linked to a material typehis & then linked with a valuation class and the GL account is linked to the valuation class. So a material type can be linked to one or more valuation classes (and hence GL Accounts) and in turn, a valuation class can be linked to multiple material types .

      Material type can have both single valuation class and multiple valuation classes. Multiple valuation classes are used in case where different materials are needed to be hit to different G/L accounts. If all materials are needed to be hit to same G/L account, then one valuation class is needed e.g. Material A is required to hit G/L 1, so valuation class 1 is created and attached to this material. Material B is required to hit G/L 2, then valuation class 2 is created and attached to this material and so on.

      Multiple valuation classes are also required when material is split valuated.

    Hi

    Group of valuation classes that the system uses

    to check whether the valuation class you have entered is allowed when you maintain accounting data in a material master record the same we can assign in Account determination which group together valuation area to draw GL automatically.

    See tx OMSK. It's relevant to automatic account determination in Inventory Management. If you want the accounts to be determined in exactly the same way as for the origional material type, then yes you can just copy it.
